CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

Immersive Dracula - T0162847689

Presented by, amongst others, Youtube sensation Olly Thorn from Philosophy Tube, this exciting new immersive production retells the classic tale of Dracula from a modern perspective, all in the deliciously haunting surroundings of the Islington Metal Works. "The Dracula family are pleased to invite you to an auction of spectacular antiques dating from the late 19th Century and once belonging to our much maligned ancestor Voivoide (Count) Vladimir Tepes Dracula. Viewable to the public for the first time since the Count's disappearance in 1895, the items include Mina Harker's journal, Van Helsing's crucifix, and an original oil portrait of the Count himself, which has not been seen since his vanishment. We vehemently hope that the viewing of these valuables will vindicate the Voivoide as virtuous and valorous, despite the scurrilous supernatural slanders of Bram Stoker." Immersive Dracula explores themes of complicity and willful ignorance in situations where powerful men are accused of dark deeds. Step by step, we lead our audience back in time to their own private horror story: with scenes occurring simultaneously in separate rooms and objects spread throughout the space providing extra context, no one audience member will be able to experience the complete tale in one night. Instead we invite you to pick which characters to follow, make choices about whose side of the story you see, and decide which hidden secrets you go in search of. Different characters have different perspectives on the events of Autumn 1895. Who will you believe? Whose actions will you be complicit in? And can monsters really never walk in the sun? The show will be followed by music in the bar, and, for VIP Ticket Holders, a free drink plus post-show Q&A with Oliver Thorn (Dracula, creator of Philosophy Tube) chaired by one of the other producers.Director Nicholas Benjamin. Performer Niamh Handley-Vaughan (Mina Harker). Performer Oliver Thorn (Dracula).

Double Bill with Frankenstein - T342193766

Using all the entertainment fireworks of Regency and Victorian theatre - music, comedy, drama, tableaux, song and captivating story-telling - the earliest Fright Night Frisson will be brought back to vivid theatrical life. From 1897, came Dracula, Bram Stoker's chilling telling of the darkest human obsessions. Stoker's own theatrical version, performed only once before at the Lyceum by Henry Irving's company, will form the basis for a new adaptation of this terrifying myth of repression and possession. Bram Stoker was the world's first great theatre general manager, revolutionising stage practices on stage and front of house, during his tenure at the Lyceum, in companies led by Henry Irving and Ellen Terry. From the moment he first saw Irving in Hamlet in Dublin in 1876, through to Irving's death on tour in Bradford in 1905, the two were inseparable, and Irving was one of the principle influences in the creation of Dracula. In order to secure the dramatic copyright for his story, Stoker compiled his own version, and a reading was performed in front of a minuscule audience in the Lyceum, given by Irving's company. This text will be adapted by Dominic Dromgoole, and the reading at the Lyceum will be the starting point for this new telling. With a single company telling these two epic stories in London's most Gothic auditorium, there is the chance, for those brave enough, of seeing both on Saturdays and Sundays.Company Classic Spring. Director Dominic Dromgoole.

An adaptation of [Bram Stoker}'s enduring classic which emphasises the romance and poetry of the story. It is a tale of good against evil - but what is explored in this version is that we all have the capacity for both. Some of the characters, while outwardly examples of middle class Victorian morality, are terribly attracted by the sensual pleasures that Dracula and his vampire brides have to offer, whilst the priest-like Van Helsing, armed with Christian symbols and preaching forgiveness, must confront the powers of darkness which might lie within each of us.Company Company of Ten.

DO not expect a straight dramatisation of Bram Stoker's turn-of-the-century novel, nor even the 600 year long love story of the 1990s film. This is a free and exciting interpretation of 'Dracula' where the unspoken, repressed, sexual elements of Stoker's story are mixed with more modern concepts of women and their sexuality; where the characters are far more than celluloid figures and where the language is a rich mixture of naturalism, poetry and humour.Adapted by Liz Lochead.
