Based on the classic horror story by Bram Stoker, UK performer Adam Darts (also a former board member for Fabulist Theatre) makes his writing debut with this modern adaptation in the style of a live radio play or “audio drama”. Director Damon Bradley Jang loves the film noir genre and opted for a modern, neo-noir aesthetic for the soundscape and costumes. Casting, as is typical for Fabulist Theatre, is decidedly non-traditional for this latest incarnation of Dracula.
Investigative journalist Harker and his fiancée Mina, have uncovered a bone-chilling story which tells of night stalkers, terrible illnesses and great beasts. Dispatched by his mysterious employer on a hunt for the truth, Harker journeys deep into the rural Carpathian mountains. There, with a group of deranged vampyre hunters, Harker discovers he must thwart the source of the evil itself: Dracula.
The eclectic, internationally trained cast includes:
Steven Simpson (TWU Acting Program) as Jonathan Harker
Kathryn Robinson (Rose Bruford College - UK)as Mina
Lennora Esi (International School for Acting for Film and Theater - Germany) as billionairess DeVille
*Nemo Cartwright (TV’s iZombie, Lucifer) as Van Helsing
