ARSHT’ Theater Up Close presents DRACULA

Thu Oct 11, 2018 - Sun Oct 28, 2018

Dracula, A World Premiere play by award-winning playwright and Zoetic Stage co-founder Michael McKeever. It’s 1897, Jonathan Harker and his fiancée Mina Murray are welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point on, nothing is what you’d expect it to be. Using Bram Stoker’s novel as starting point, McKeever has reinvented the gothic horror tale with a feminist point of view and created female characters that not only stand up to the title character, but eventually overcome him. Breaking the mold of what a Victorian “lady” should be, the women in this DRACULA are strong, determined and unwilling to play victim to any predator. A very modern take on a classic story.
