The Empire Theatres, shake & stir theatre co and Queensland Performing Arts Centre present


by Bram Stoker
created and adapted by shake & stir theatre co


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.

This project is supported by The Playing Queensland Fund and arTour, initiatives of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet
