Wilmslow Guild Players' entry

Garlic and Lavender

by Nick Warburton

Wilmslow Guild Players' own entry to the festival will be Garlic and Lavender, an outrageous vampire comedy which combines every traditional element of the vampire horror genre - including a sinister henchman, surly villagers and a doughty vampire expert! Sorry, but we couldn't afford Sarah Michelle Gellar, but needless to say the vampire gets slain in the endor does he??
