“I am all in a sea of wonders. I doubt; I fear; I think strange things which I dare not confess to my own soul” – Bram Stoker

Darkness descends over the wind-whipped headlands of Whitby, the silence scorched as a coal-black shadow tears through the sky. A howl echoes around the town’s twisting collection of castles, convents and caves.

Dracula. Dracula has come.

This winter, Bath Theatre Academy’s final year students present a retelling of Bram Stoker’s peerless Gothic masterpiece, told at a crossroads of human evolution. To whom – or what – do we turn when the Old Ways no longer light the path? How do you fight something you can’t see? And what if the thing you fear most grows, lives and pulses through your very veins?
