The Last Vampire and The Vampyre | A Celebration of Halloween
TThe Lewes Public Library Shakespeare Festival brings New York City's own David Logan Rankin to perform staged readings of two vampire-themed pieces for Halloween. The first, John William Polidoris’ 1819 piece, The Vampyre, was written as a short work of prose fiction as part of a contest that produced Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It is perhaps the first written work to combine the various elements of the vampire tale into a coherent literary work. Joining Rankin in this reading is Lewes’ own Sadie Andros. The second piece The Last Vampire, is a solo piece written and read by David Logan Rankin. It is a chilling experience as the audience interacts directly with the vampire as he tells us of his experiences in the hundreds of years of his existence amongst us.

This performance is on the lawn behind the library. For your comfort, bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on, and dress for the weather. Social distancing areas will be marked out for attendees and masks that cover the mouth and nose most be worn on library property. In case of inclement weather, the event will be canceled.
