The most powerful woman in Eastern Europe pursues beauty at any cost. But even the "Bloody Countess" can't stop the onslaught of the years and the social and political chaos that is enveloping the world around her.
Based on the true story of Elizabeth Bathory, who was accused of murdering over 600 women. Award-winning playwright Don Fried's dark and visceral new play makes its world premiere.
"Don Fried's unforgiving portrait of 17th century Hungary expands the story of the Blood Countess into an unflinching tale of real flesh and blood
and desire and betrayal." Dennis Bathory-Kitzs, composer of the opera Erzsebet
