Dracula Blood of Nosferatu : A Play in Three Acts(2001)
A novel by Darryl Pickett
Playwright and former Walt Disney Imagineer Darryl Pickett presents a surprising new look at Dracula in this dynamic adaptation. The oft-retold Bram Stoker tale receives a transfusion of wit, social conscience and brooding paranoia. Highlighting a fiercely independent Mina Murray at odds with Victorian codes and mores, this version sets aside the swooning romantic melodrama of so many recent Draculas, and brings to life a horrific, corrupting force truly more terrifying than death. Requiring a cast of 16 and a modular unit set, this is an ambitious but rewarding play, particularly well suited to university theater departments looking for a Halloween offering with substantial bite.
