Thurso Players Present Dracula At The Mill Theatre

18 - 20 May 2006
Dracula has been adapted many times and a script by Liz Lochhead has been chosen for this production of Bram Stoker's chilling love story

The adaptation has a touch of modern tongue and with with this is mind has had a modern direction. Don't go expecting to see a flowing red cape and a badly constructed Transylvanian accent. You will see the story of Dracula in its purity; which is a love triangle.

Jonathan Harker is a young solicitor intending to marry his true love, Mina Westerman. Before they can share the happy day, Jonathan must finalize the selling of a London home to a man residing in Transylvania called Count Dracula. Unbeknownst to Jonathan, this is all part of Dracula's plan in order to sail to London and feed on the blood of Jonathan's family and loved ones.

There are many subplots and characters in the play so the action never stops moving. I have chosen a soundtrack made up of organ music to help emphasize the dramatic purpose. When people come to see this production they will see a gripping tale of love, passion and blood.
