Kate Hamill and Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm to Adapt Dracula and Frankenstein
The plays will be seen at Classic Stage Company.
Kate Hamill and Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm will adapt two canonical gothic horror works into stage plays for Classic Stage Company's upcoming season.
Hamill (Little Women) will adapt Bram Stoker's Dracula, while Chisholm (Hooded, or Being Black for Dummies), will adapt Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The productions will be performed in repertory January-March 2020.
With its new repertory series, CSC expands its panoramic view of what constitutes a classic. The program launched earlier this year with Yaël Farber's Mies Julie, adapted from Strindberg's Miss Julie, and Strindberg's The Dance of Death, in a new version by Conor McPherson.
