New Year’s Eve, 1965, London, England.
Just before midnight, as revellers celebrate the beginning of another year, a young woman enters Marylebone Police Station and confesses to a brutal murder.
She claims to be Mina Harker, the last living survivor of the intrepid group that witnessed Count Dracula’s destruction 70 years before. But Mina Harker has not been seen since 1901. And if she was alive, she would be ninety years old.
Unfolding on stage as a live graphic novel, Dracula: The Untold Story is a chilling, new version of the classic gothic vampire tale that you thought you knew so well.
