on the dark side of twilight

What impact does classic gothic literature have upon contemporary society?  This one-act drama explores the evolution of the classic vampire myth, from its literary origins in John Polidori’s “The Vampyre,” through Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” Anne Rice’s “Interview With A Vampire,” and concluding with Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight.”  An homage to four pivotal moments in the history of classic vampire literature, taken as a whole the play describes a complete, two century epic centering around the character of Aubrey Porlock.
