A one act play in five scenes and based on a true story: When Elizabeth Bathory discovers that the blood of maidens will keep her young, she sets off on a bloody killing spree that lasts for years and results in the deaths of hundreds. When she is finally caught, she is walled up in her own castle. There, ever young and beautiful, she is denied the love and adoration she so craves. Then a young priest, looking for fame and advancement, comes to save her. Will her need for his flesh be stronger than his need for her soul?

“Presented as a play in dramatic verse, ELIZABETH BATHORY is a smart rendition of the true-life medieval countess who served as one of the influences for Bram Stoker’s DRACULA story. Highly recommended” ~ reviewed by Sparks Reviews [FIVE STARS]
