Renfield or, Dining at the Bughouse by Bill Zaget
Regular price $12.00
Drawing inspiration from the insect-eating madman from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the piece is stripped of specific time and locality to become a timeless condemnation of those who wield and pervert power and the abuse of children. Renfield sits in his room at the asylum, awaiting the arrival of his “Master” from Transylvania. Told at times from the point-of-view of the insects he has eaten, Renfield’s troubled past is finally revealed. Bizarre, poetic and moving.
