      Are you ready to be scared witless?
      To be entertained with breathtaking magic and illusion?

      World Premiere of award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery�s adaptation of
      Bram Stoker�s Dracula with COLIN BAKER AND HARRY POTTER VILLIAN RICHARD
      BREMMER

      A BLOODCURDLINGLY BRILLIANT NEW VERSION OF BRAM STOKER'S TIMELESS NOVEL

      Enigmatic and terrifying, sensual yet deadly, the fearsome figure of
      Dracula continues to haunt and enthral us. As old as sin itself, the
      story's epic battle between good and evil, darkness and light, is one that
      has journeyed through the generations to the very heart of our modern-day
      world, and maybe beyond.

      Written in 1897, Bram Stoker�s novel of sexual repression and Gothic
      terror
      has been brought bang up to date. Count Dracula is one of the most
      powerful
      creations of horror ever conceived and is played by Richard Bremmer who is
      perhaps best known as OHe who must not be named� in �Harry Potter and the
      Philosopher�s Stone�.

      ENIGMATIC, TERRIFYING AND ENTHRALLING

      DRACULA is produced by The Touring Consortium who have built up an
      extraordinary reputation for touring quality drama across the UK. Previous
      productions have included The Crucible which toured to packed theatres
      around the country in Autumn 2004, the acclaimed Of Mice and Men which
      transferred into London�s West End and won Matthew Kelly an Olivier Award
      for OBest Actor�, The Diary of Anne Frank and A Doll�s House with Tara
      Fitzgerald.

      COLIN BAKER plays Van Helsing, a man determined to rid the world of the
      evil and �The Bill� star and �Little Britain� favourite Hywel Simons plays
      Van Helsing�s ready assistant Dr Seward. They are joined by TV favourites
      Laura Howard, who plays John Nettles� daughter Cully Barnaby in �Midsomer
      Murders� and �Casualty� favourite Spencer, Ben Keaton. This very modern
      adaptation of Dracula is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh, one of the
      country�s
      most highly regarded directors, and has one of the Magic Circle�s top men,
      and �Jonathan Creek� advisor Scott Penrose, working on the illusions.
      The adaptation by award-winning writer Bryony Lavery (and Tony Award
      nominee for 'Frozen') promises to scare audiences witless; entertain and
      enthrall with spectacle, sound and breathtaking magic...it will span
      centuries and challenge every preconception you have ever had about the
      legendary figure of ...DRACULA!

      But be afraid S. BE CHARMED S BE SEDUCED AND BE CHALLENGED
