from the novel by Bram Stoker

adapted for stage by Liz Lochhead


By arrangement with Nick Hern Books

Bram Stoker wrote Dracula in 1897, at the high point of Victorian industrial imperialism, when Britain was cocksure about its colonies, its science and its manhood. This exciting new version of Stoker’s classic novel, a primal myth that is rich, complex, frightening and exciting, is a deftly woven tapestry of contrasts – day and night, sane and mad, life and death, heart and head, female and male.

Part of the 16th annual Wakefield Drama Festival, which takes place at Theatre Royal Wakefield with companies from across the North of England competing for a series of awards. Seven different companies will be judged by a professional adjudicator with awards presented at the end of the week. Seven night pass holders get to vote for their favourite in the Audience Award.
