About this show

It's 1897, and Jonathan Harker and his fiancée, Mina Murray, are welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point on, nothing is what you'd expect it to be. Using Bram Stoker's novel as a starting point, Michael McKeever has reinvented the gothic horror tale with a feminist point of view and created female characters who not only stand up to the title character but eventually overcome him. Breaking the mold of what a Victorian "lady" should be, the women in this Dracula are strong, determined, and unwilling to play victim to any predator. A world-premiere play directed by Stuart Meltzer, this is a very modern take on a classic story.
