RedTwist Opens DRACULA, 10/1
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2010

This October, come face-to-face with evil. London, 1893: insanity is spreading like a red infection over the East End. Human ashes spill from an abandoned ship. Wild-eyed streetwalkers recite Shakespeare sonnets to feed their starving children, and mad killers send bloody notes to newspapers promising a flood of innocent victims. Through the dense fog in the dark streets of a dying city, stalks a force of monstrous evil, as a bloodied band of outsiders sacrifice all to save their country from an unspeakable fate. Redtwist Theatre presents DRACULA: A TRAGEDY, a new adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic horror novel that asks if justice can live in the same world as terror, and what happens to a country when its nightmares come to life. You are invited to enter Dracula's madhouse: you will see the teeth; you will smell the decay; you will feel the fear. (more...)
