Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Theatre Company presents...
A new adaptation for stage based on F. W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film
Directed by Stephen Simms
Choreography by Maria Blundell-Palethorpe
A new theatre production.
Thomas Hutter awakes alone, imprisoned in a deserted castle in Eastern Europe, to find strange bite marks on his neck, and a host – Count Orlok – who has suddenly disappeared, taking with him several huge coffin-like boxes filled with earth. Back home in England, Thomas’s home town suffers a bizarre horrific plague, and his young wife falls ill, and unexpectedly and passionately longs to join the creatures of the night.
Based on the 1922 German Expressionist horror film directed by F. W. Murnau, this brand new theatre production is a highly physical and poetic re-imagining of the gothic Dracula myth, exploring its themes of identity, sanity, and the dark corners of sexual desire.
At times disturbing, oddly funny, and visually beautiful, this new production knocks at the window of your mind and asks you to invite us in… all you have to do is say yes.
