Tickets are selling fast, so book now!
Co-commissioned by Cornwall’s iconic Minack Theatre this vividly drawn adaptation is enriched with a wealth of apposite new material… Making the story both hauntingly familiar yet utterly unpredictable as this gothic classic takes off in unexpected and unimaginable directions. Packed with a wealth of vividly drawn and larger-than-life characters (including some who are clearly un-dead) Dracula: The Kisses features a hugely accomplished all-female cast to drive a production that breaks entirely new ground.
Lush and lavish, using steam-punk design to tap into the Victorian fascination with science and gender, Dracula: The Kisses is a wildly entertaining romp that explores sexuality, religious values, politics and feminism… without compromising on the daft, dark fun that is quintessential Dracula.
Dracula: The Kisses is directed by Helen Tennison whose credits include working with Giles Block on the 2008 Globe Theatre season, directing Antony and Cleopatra for Creation Theatre in 2011 and directing Breakfast With Emma (adaptation of Madame Bovary) and Sense and Sensibility in 2012/13 which were Time Out Critics’ Choice and were nominated for 7 Off West End Awards including Best Director.
