Program Note

Tired of her life as a human killer, music-loving octogenarian Olga starts questioning whether it's the vampire blues. While her daughter Simone sees it as mere pickiness, Olga is placed in a care home full of those who are nearing the end of their lives.

Program Note

An octogenarian vampire named Olga, suffering from depression, enters a nursing home filled with dying humans at her daughter’s behest. What sets this story apart is that Olga, a grandmotherly vampire, is not depicted as the typical young, beautiful, and alluring vampire found in vampire stories. The fact that she laboriously discovers her own way of feeding is what makes her the protagonist, and it is incredibly captivating. Twisting common clichés to create satire is not as easy as it sounds, which adds to the charm of the narrative. (Kristin JI)
