ANOTHER BLOODY CLASSIC
The Gothic horror story swoops the country in a gripping, critically-acclaimed production created by shake & stir.
When young Lawyer Jonathan Harker visits Castle Dracula deep within the Carpathian mountains, he’s not expecting the strange hospitality he receives from his mysterious host. Alone and trapped within the castle walls, Jonathan discovers that Dracula wants more than his presence at the dinner table – he might also be the main course. Leaving Jonathan for dead and his castle behind, Dracula travels to London on a quest for seduction, true love and above all – blood.
From the company behind the multi-award winning, national touring productions of 1984 and Animal Farm comes this new adaptation of Stoker’s twisted tale.

GO BEYOND THE EXPERIENCE
The power of performing arts is increased when patrons engage actively with the stories above and beyond their experience in the auditorium.
Dare to stay behind after the performance, within the dark confines of The Playhouse, to sink your teeth into the neck er … brains and knowledge of the entire cast and crew who will be on stage for a post-show Q&A. You can ask them anything you like or simply surrender yourselves to their hypnotic charm as they talk about DRACULA.
In exchange, we have offered the blood of the fabulous HIT 104.7’s Tanya Hennessey, who will be our host.
