About the Show
The Morris-Jumel Mansion presents Bram Stoker’s gothic legend of seduction and immortality staged in its historic Octagon room, surrounded by period art and furnishings.
Closely following the plot of the novel, the play chronicles Count Dracula's journey to England, his stalking of two young women, and his pursuit and eventual defeat by the heroines' suitors and their associates. This intimate, minimalist staging aims to peel back the layers and reveal the inner workings of Stoker's classic characters with fresh insight.
“Stoker's ‘Dracula’ contains very little outright blood and gore...Instead, it relies on atmospherics and a tight character focus to recreate the sense of Gothic horror...A daring approach...Because of this production's perfect casting and strongly present setting, Carbone's take works beautifully...If you're looking for a deliciously creepy yet tasteful horror and especially if you're fond of Stoker's novel -- you can't do better than this splendid embodiment of the ultimate vampire tale.”
