"The blood is the life, and it shall be mine..."
Solicitor Jonathan Harker leaves his fiancée Mina for the Carpathian Mountains, to finalise a property sale with the enigmatic Count Dracula, who is soon to purchase Carfax Abbey in London. But the Count hides a terrifying secret, the discovery of which is just the beginning of a nightmare in which Harker will become a prisoner of darkness, while a bloodthirsty, supernatural force is unleashed back in England. There, a small group of friends must learn to believe in the undead, in order to hunt down and destroy the seemingly unstoppable vampire.
The Harlequins Players will premiere this new adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic gothic-horror tale, adapted by screenwriter Phil Ford and directed by Chris Finney (Moby Dick, Frankenstein).
