Dracula - the Bloody Truth a comedy? The answer is yes, absolutely and a hilarious comedy the like you have never seen before. Irish author Bram Stoker wrote the original Dracula novel that has been made into many movie versions, television productions, comic book tales, video games and stage plays. However, in our production Dracula's nemesis Professor Van Helsing visits TAG in order to set things right and tell you, the audience, what actually happened and the real ending to the story that Stoker got so wrong. In order to help him explain the true Dracula story Van Helsing brings three actors to TAG who will assist him as he educates you and eventually sends you home with the bloody truth.
From Transylvania and Castle Dracula across the seas to Yorkshire with all that he needs to expand and protect his vampire protégées did Van Helsing really track down Dracula and put an end to his unearthly ways? Or is he alive and well living amongst us today? If vampires have ever entered your thoughts you owe it to yourself to attend Professor Van Helsing's enlightening presentation and find out the bloody truth for yourself.
Warning - wooden stakes, garlic, unearthly sounds, scary lighting, the odd (very) vampire, a horse replica, a cargo sailing ship (actually only a pretend one, the real thing was too expensive) and many other frightening things might appear in the production so be warned.

Based on the strong recommendations of Dr Robert Strang and Dr Lisa Barrett, we are maintaining the following protocols for Dracula to provide a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience.
