A special performance of Bram Stoker’s Dracula comes to The Haymarket in Basingstoke
Bram Stoker’s masterpiece Dracula, has been adapted for the stage by John Ginman with a unique approach and can be enjoyed at The Haymarket, Basingstoke, for one night only on Saturday October 5 at 7.30pm.
The time is 1897. Mankind is on the cusp of vast technological change, scientific mastery and media innovation. Poised between traditional beliefs, the threat of the unknown and the shock of the new world, an altogether darker fear is emerging.
Stretching from London, through provincial England, to the mountainous wastes of Transylvania, Bram Stoker’s timeless Gothic thriller embodies the struggle to break taboos, resist temptation and stop the unknown outside becoming the enemy within.
As Dracula’s shadow looms large over England, a small group of young men and women, led by Professor Van Helsing, are locked in a struggle for survival.
Dracula is presented by Blackeyed Theatre, in association with South Hill Park.
This brilliant, theatrical treatment of Bram Stoker’s adventure blends Victorian Gothic with the contemporary, drawing on a wide range of forms of popular entertainment that were established or emerging at the time.
With specially commissioned live music, powerful ensemble performances and innovative design, Dracula promises an exciting and thought-provoking theatrical experience.
Director, Eliot Giuralarocca, said: “We have all the ingredients needed to create something exciting, memorable and thought provoking.
“I'm hoping we’ll give the audiences something that they can really get their teeth into!”
Suitable for ages 13 and over.
Tickets for Dracula are priced £16. Under 16s and fulltime students pay £10 plus booking fee.
