Dracula - British Touring Shakespeare

27th & 28th August, 7.30pm

By Bram Stoker adapted for the stage and directed by Andrew Hobbs

Professor Abraham Van Helsing, an expert in the supernatural, presents his most terrifying case as he is called in to help a young woman who becomes mysteriously ill during a trip to Whitby. Has Lucy Westenra contracted some rare disease or has she fallen victim to something more evil? And what has become of her best friend Mina’s fiancé Jonathan Harker after he was sent to the Carpathian Mountains to oversee the purchase of a London house by the sinister Count Dracula?

British Touring Shakespeare bring their renowned strengths of energy and accessibility to a brand new adaptation of this classic gothic horror tale which will make for an unforgettable evening of open air theatre.

This play contains adult themes which some younger children may find scary so parental discretion is advised.
