About the show

Hunger & Thirst Theatre brings the infamous villain of Gothic literature into the 21st century with its new take on Bram Stoker's haunting novel. More…

Curious about how far humanity has progressed, Count Dracula ventures to contemporary America to expand his territory and conquer the modern-day female. Using their wits, whatever courage they have left, and, of course, their smartphones, a band of friends do their best to take down the Master himself.
