Bram Stoker’s seminal work is the starting point for a radical exploration of our fascination with the most enduring manifestation of evil in literature and cinema.

Unfolding on stage as a live graphic novel, this show is a chilling politically engaged and radical new version of the classic gothic vampire tale.

‘a wild gothic thrill ride…Inventive, amusing, genuinely thrilling at times, this is a blend of digital and live performance that makes sense for our era.’

The Guardian *****

'Dazzlingly original’

The Stage

‘The fusion of live action and video technology is
breathtakingly inventive.’

The Times

‘Imitating the Dog’s technical marvel of a show turns an updated version of Bram Stoker’s novel into a live-action graphic novel…spectacular, innovative theatre, as dramatically forceful and thought-provoking as it is entertaining.’
