In the spring of 1893 Jonathan Harker, a young English solicitor, visits Castle Dracula in Transylvania for what he believes to be a routine deal with the nobleman Count Dracula. Harker soon realises that he is not a visitor at all, instead a prisoner to the deadly Dracula, who sets off to find Mina, Harkerâs fiancÃ©e, and her sister Lucy. The more Harker investigates his confinement, the more he fears his deadly captor. Can someone stop Dracula before he unleashes his supernatural powers on his first victim? In this tragic tale of power and redemptive love, the lines between the sane and the insane become dangerously vague. This new adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic, performed by just two actors, will use innovative audio-visual design to conjure up the phantom count, deep in the basement of Blackwell's Bookshop.Performers Sophie Greenham, Christopher York.
