London's Second Skin Theatre premieres a play based on the life of the "Bloody Countess," Elizabeth Bathory.

Orphaned and vulnerable early in life, Elizabeth Bathory rose to become one of the most powerful women in Europe. However, she was not left untouched by her struggle and, possibly insane, she is reputed to have tortured and murdered over 600 women. Bathory's life was one of the inspirations behind the vampire myths, including Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla and Bram Stoker's Dracula.

In Blood Privilege, playwright Don Fried looks behind the legend to where truth, myth and horror collide. The play explores the corruption that comes with absolute power and the doom that pursues those who seek it.

Director Andy McQuade is the co-founder of Second Skin Theatre, which is known in London for presenting dark, visceral work. He is the winner of the 2012 award for Best Theatre Director, Fringe Report (London). Second Skin Theatre commissioned award-winning playwright Fried to write Blood Privilege and, following the New York premiere, will present the play at its home theatre in London.
