    Dracula

    7.45pm (2.30pm only on Sunday)Chesil Theatre, Winchester

    17 March 2020: POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

    DRACULA – FIRST YOU HAVE TO INVITE HIM IN!

    The evenings may be getting lighter but a darkness will hang over the Chesil Theatre, Winchester, when Dracula engulfs the stage in a modern adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Gothic tale, which runs from 28 March to 4 April 2020.

    It’s the close of the nineteenth century and a freak storm brings more than bad weather to the cosy town of Whitby. The most famous vampire of them all, Count Dracula, has arrived. His interest is in the Westerman sisters, who are enjoying a seaside holiday. Mina, an intelligent young woman, conforms to the requirements of Victorian society but Lucy is quite the opposite. Vivacious and bold, she strains at the leash, pushing barriers and with horrifying results.

    Poet and playwright Liz Lochhead tells this intriguing story, whilst also bringing contemporary issues into the drama. Faith battles with reason, madness with sanity. Does the heart rule, or the head?

    Dracula runs at the Chesil Theatre, Chesil Street, Winchester, nightly from Saturday 28 March to Saturday 4 April 2020, with a matinee only on Sunday 29 March at 2.30pm. Tickets are available from www.chesiltheatre.org.uk. This production contains strong language and adult themes.

    Tickets: £14 adult / £10 under 18s and students; For Group bookings of 10 or more contact tickets@chesiltheatre.org.uk to book. (No group discount on 28th or 29th March)
