Dracula & Frankenstein: Two Horror Plays

Bryony Lavery/ Lisa Evans

Dracula & Frankenstein: Two Horror Plays brings together two classic horror tales, updated for the 21stcentury and adapted for the stage by two of Britain’s leading playwrights.

Dracula by Bryony Lavery

A bloodcurdlingly brilliant new version of Bram Stoker's timeless novel. Count Dracula is one of the most powerful creations of horror ever conceived, yet his lonely and deadly pursuit of immortality seems to touch a human nerve that transcends time and culture. This modern adaptation by award-winning Bryony Lavery promises to scare audiences whilst enthralling them with spectacle and breathtaking magic.

Frankenstein by Lisa Evans

'Shelley's story is slickly reborn by Evans for the 21st century'.  The Times

Framed from a modern day perspective, this is Frankenstein as you’ve never seen it before… Mary is imprisoned in a present-day psychiatric hospital, convicted of murdering her baby daughter. During her incarceration she becomes obsessed with Mary Shelley’s famous novel. The novel comes to life within her imagination, and we are left to question just who the real monster really is, Mary or Frankenstein himself…
