The days are counting down to Dracula: The Untold Story coming to Liverpool‘s Playhouse Theatre. The show comes to Liverpool from Tuesday October 12 to Saturday October 16 2021.

Dracula: The Untold Story

Background

It’s New Year’s Eve 1965 in London, England. And just before midnight, revellers are celebrating the beginning of another year. But at that moment, a young woman visits Marylebone Police Station to confess to a brutal murder. Now, she claims to be Mina Harker, Mina being the sole survivor of the intrepid group witnessing Count Dracula’s terrifying actions 70 years beforehand. However, Mina hasn’t been seen herself ever since 1901. Furthermore, if she was still with us, then by now she would be 90-years-old. But as Mina confesses to terrifying events, she retells the tale of Bram Stoker’s classic novel. And she claims it’s the true story; the untold story. What’s more, she has to tell it now, before sunrise. Before it’s too late; before …

So, unfolding as a live graphic novel, this chilling new version scares those who believe they already know Dracula too well. And the show utilises the most innovative digital technologies to show the dark landscape of the gothic world. And there’s a renewal of energy and political insight along the way.

Creatives

The show has direction and an adaptation from Andrew Quick and Pete Brooks. Additionally, there’s design by Laura Hopkins, lighting design from Andrew Crofts and original music composition from James Hamilton. And the projection and video design come courtesy of Simon Wainwright.
