"The play, written by Chris Lambert and Jon Shelley, is centred on a supernatural hospital for victims of all manner of creatures but most importantly to the plot, vampires. With Twilight being achingly popular, Vampire Hospital is an amusing laugh at the preternatural-obsessed culture we’re in." - Reading Chronicle
