About the play:
A fresh take on the Dracula story
Dracula, street name Vlad Tepes, is alive and flourishing in Washington, DC. The ancient predator feels right at home among K Street lobbyists.
For dinner, he can dine on any of the fresh kills provided by his butler Renfield.
Awash in a field of plenty, Dracula has one problem: his beloved bride, Mina, is dying and his sights are set on Lucy, a beautiful but bored graduate student.
A modern telling, Dracula’s nemesis is the scientist Eva Calderone, a fiery vampire killer. “He is the prince of liars. Don’t swim in his bullshit!” she warns. Film fans will recognize a tribute to The Hunger and other Dracula films.
There is a tragic twist at the end that reminds us the subtitle of this drama is “A Love Story.” Just not the one you are expecting.
Dracula. A Love Story features a superb cast and will be performed in the air-conditioned comfort of Mountain – Mount Vernon United Methodist Church, 900 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC.
