Let It Fang

by David Berkson

Karl Vitomir, an exceptional but unknown actor, is hired to play the villain in the infamous Jacobean revenge tragedy Let It Fang.  But his presence quickly becomes a problem when company members mysteriously disappear and soon life begins to imitate the bloody art of Jacobean depravity and revenge.  Written and directed by David Berkson, Let It Fang – Part I: Theatre of Blood creates two distinct worlds: an old, re-discovered revenge tragedy and a modern theatre company’s bloody struggle to bring that play to the stage.  The first of two parts, Let It Fang – Part I: Theatre of Blood combines the supernatural  conventions of vampire fiction, the heightened language of 17th Century verse, and the  sensibilities of old-fashioned backstage comedy.  The cast includes Doug Cornett, Bryce Duncan, Doren Elias, Timothy Fodge, Camille Gluskoter, Megan Skye Hale, Caitlin Lushington, Chris Porter, Patrick Tangredi, Wendy Wilcox and Lance Woolen.

Readers Theatre Repertory is proud to present Let It Fang – Part I: Theatre of Blood as part of the 2019 Fertile Ground Festival .  This production is made possible by a generous grant from Northwest Academy and the Globe Foundation.  The Let It Fang logo was designed and painted by Charles Daniels.

Readers Theatre Repertory (RTR) was founded in 2001 to tell “small stories with big ideas at their heart”, tales that alternately amuse, confront, assuage and inspire.  Using one-act plays as the text, the company focuses on intimate human relationships to explore universal themes.  Through these stories and through educational outreach and affordable ticket prices, RTR is committed to developing, expanding and diversifying Portland’s theatrical audiences.  The company’s mainstage season performs at Blackfish Gallery in Portland’s Pearl District.  For more information about RTR, visit  or on Facebook at


At RTR we’re committed to producing theatre that’s both excellent and affordable. To that end, we have not raised our ticket prices for 16 years. Two years ago we  raised the price to $10 per ticket. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause our patrons, we’re confident that they will understand that such a step is necessary to keep up with the rising costs of production.
