Dracula - The Bloody Truth
by Le Navet Bete and John Nicholson
In the original novel Dracula, Professor Abraham Van Helsing chases Dracula from Transylvania to England and back trying to rid the world of this terrible vampire. Our play brings Professor Van Helsing to The Pond Playhouse to tell the audience how the novelist Bram Stoker did not get the story quite right, but he will straighten things out with the help of his group of actors. As Van Helsing recreates the Dracula story about everything that can go wrong does. The actors, the props, the set, costumes, back stage crew etc. incompetently try to recreate the story as Van Helsing vainly tries his best to keep things going.The result is outrageous comedy.
Directed by Nicholas Jupp.

Several actors play multiple roles and gender is not important.
This is a fast paced production with tight comedic interactions, set changes by the cast, a little singing and some improvisation when things invariably go wrong. Actors will need to attend ALL rehearsals due to the nature of this production.
