Dracula returned to the venue where he was created….
A new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, performed by just two actors and using innovative audio-visual design to conjure up the phantom count. Staged in the Reading Room of the London Library, where Bram Stoker – a Library member – researched his masterpiece.
“Creation Theatre’s Dracula is a sensuous, sinister affair that benefits greatly from the gorgeously atmospheric Reading Room of the London Library that serves as its stage.” Theatre Weekly
“Sophie Greenham gives a cover-the-waterfront performance as Mina/Lucy/Dr Seward, by turns knowing and postmodern, flirtatious, or cut glass Home Counties asperity with an undercurrent of self-doubt…. Does the venue make the play or the play make the venue? They seem so intimately intertwined that it’s difficult to tell how it would work somewhere else, but tonight in the atmospheric London Library reading room, it was love at first bite.” Londonist.com
