Dracula (stage version)

Written by Bram Stoker

Dracula (stage version) Synopsis

The fabled figures of Jonathan Harker, the archetypal innocent abroad, Mina Westerman, his anxious fiance, Renfield, Van Helsing and, of course, Count Dracula himself are brought brilliantly to life (or the undead) in this adaptation for the stage which sticks refreshingly close to Bram Stoker's original while grounding the whole story in a believable reality. First staged at the Edinburgh Lyceum in 1985, Liz Lochhead's Dracula is republished here in a revised version with a new introduction by the author. Much performed by amateur drama groups, it was originally published by Penguin.
