“I want you to believe...to believe in things that you cannot.”
Bram Stoker points out in the Icelandic Preface:
"I state again that this mysterious tragedy which is here described in my book Dracula is completely true in all its external respects, though naturally I have reached a different conclusion on certain points than those involved in the story.” Bram Stoker.
An original Play/Movie written by Dacre Stoker & Gary Gillies
The play is based on an omitted section of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel ‘Dracula’ which is the forerunner of horror literature. A section at the opening of the book was removed by the publisher as it was thought to be too frightful for audiences. Stoker had originally written words to the effect that Vampires might exist....... and walk among us and the play is based around this belief.
Hammer movie star from the Dracula films Caroline Munro will will first do a presentation and will explain to the audience that she and Dacre Stoker have spent their life researching Bram Stokers manuscripts and how he believed vampires to exist.
She will convey how it has taken her years of dedicated research to uncover and finally meet a vampire and how he has invited the vampire to appear before audiences where he will interview him and discuss how he/they have managed to exist and survive undetected in the world.
The overall look and feel of the performance will be dark, terrifying and it will have an interactive quality, where the cast will at time enter the audience.... it will have realism so audience will question if what they are experiencing is in fact real?
The Play will be filmed and releases as a movie.
