BOOK NOW
When solicitor Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula purchase a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries in his client’s castle.

Soon afterwards, disturbing incidents unfold in England: an unmanned ship is wrecked; strange puncture marks appear on a young woman’s neck; and a lunatic asylum inmate raves about the imminent arrival of his ‘Master’. In the ensuing battle of wits between the sinister Count and a determined group of adversaries, Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing into questions of identity, sanity and the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.

Liz Lochhead is a former Makar, the Scots equivalent of the Poet Laureate. In her adaptation of this classic novel, she deftly weaves a tapestry of contrasts: day and night, sane and mad, life and death, heart and head – and female and male.

By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

Contains adult themes. There are stroboscope effects in both acts of the show.

Act 1 - 1hr 15mins

Act 2 - Ihr 5mins

 

'Despite remaining faithful to Bram Stoker's original, Liz Lochhead's version grapples with contemporary preoccupations... an erudite revisiting of a primal myth.' - The Stage
