DRACULA (Frankston)

Shake & Stir Theatre Company

DRACULA DRACULA
Another bloody classic! The Gothic horror story swoops the country in a gripping, critically-acclaimed production.

When young lawyer Jonathan Harker visits Castle Dracula deep within the Carpathian mountains, he's not expecting the strange hospitality he receives from his mysterious host. Alone and trapped within the castle walls, Jonathan discovers that Dracula wants more than his presence at the dinner table – he might also be the main course. Leaving Jonathan for dead and his castle
behind, Dracula travels to London on a quest for seduction, true love and above all – blood.

From the company behind the multi award-winning, national touring productions of Wuthering Heights and Animal Farm comes this new adaptation of Stoker's twisted tale.
