Dracula at Kirkstall Abbey

18 July 2013 7:30pm - 10:00pm

Heartbreak Productions present Bram Stoker's Dracula

 

​An ominous presence haunts Lucy's dreams; something is approaching! Thrills, chills and spine tingling fear abound in Heartbreak’s new adaptation of the Bram Stoker classic, Dracula.

Join us in the atmospheric surroundings of Kirkstall Abbey for this open-air performance of the classic Gothic tale.

The story follows Lucy, beloved by everyone, as she tries to resist the intoxicating and seductive onslaught from Count Dracula. However Dr Van Helsing’s attempt to save her fails as he and his accomplices wreak havoc in their dramatic chase back to Transylvania to rid the world of Dracula.
Heartbreak promise erotic chills and scares a-plenty as a team of Victorian undertakers take us on a thrilling journey from Transylvanian castles to Whitby Abbey via the morgues and asylums of London - not for the faint hearted.
From a story that inspired spin-offs including Buffy and the Twilight series, Heartbreak Productions' renowned unique and inventive style assures a dark, original and sexy approach to this iconic Gothic novel and promises audiences a heady and absorbing open air theatre experience.

Price:   £12.00 Adults, £10.00 Concessions
