Blood Countess is a short play about Elisabeth Bathory, a Hungarian Countess accused of being a serial killer who bathed in the blood of her victims. Rather than depicting the murders, Blood Countess uses Brechtian and film noir techniques to explore the aftermath. Did Elisabeth truly kill these girls, and if so, why? And how does her being a woman, a widow, and a figure of power figure into it?
Developed at Skidmore College, Spring 2016
Presented at Manhattan Repertory Theatre August 2016
