By Bram Stoker

Experience the terror of Bram Stoker’s Dracula in this eerie and immersive production deep in the underground caverns of Temple Meads station.

Solicitor Jonathan Harker arrives at Count Dracula’s crumbling mansion deep in Transylvania to provide legal assistance. The Count has bought a castle next to an asylum in England and plans to travel over to take up his new residence.

Back in England at the asylum an inmate is refusing hospital food, living off insects and birds whilst babbling about his master who is coming with the promise of eternal life.

Then, as a storm rages in the dead of night a black ship heads towards the English coast…

Poetic and psychologically gripping, Liz Lochhead’s Dracula is a raw and sultry stage adaptation of Bram Stoker’s hugely influential novel. It was first performed at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, on 13 March 1985.

Please note: This is a promenade-style immersive performance. There will be seating around for those that need it as we move through the tunnels. After the interval the audience will have the opportunity to sit for a significant portion of the action. There is disabled access but the floor is uneven in places and some parts of the show will be in limited lighting. We encourage you to wear sturdy shoes and wrap up warm in dark coloured clothing. We kindly request that high heels are not worn. Ushers will be on hand should you need assistance.
