Let Them Call It Mischief presents DRACULA World premiere, by Danny Wainwright and Daniel Hallissey, based on Bram Stoker’s original story

We all know the Dracula story…or do we?

‘Dracula’ meets ’39 Steps’ meets ‘Black Adder’ in this hilarious take on the best-loved classic.
1897 : Join Count Dracula, the first Romanian immigrant, on his visit to England where he inadvertently strikes fear into the male establishment whilst seeking love in order to break his curse. Every minute is filled with dry humour, surprising twists, and downright silliness. Present is the undercurrent of the suffragette movement, as its powerful message begins to influence young female hearts. I have a cunning plan…

Cleverly fusing 19th century English gentry together with the modern world, Let Them Call It Mischief’s production is a funny and fast-paced retelling of a well-known Gothic tale, superbly portrayed by five actors taking on various characters.

Known for their playful and imaginative approach to best-loved classics, Let Them Call It Mischief was founded in 2012 by Danny Wainwright, Stephanie Martin, Hilary Puxley, Flo Buckeridge and Tessa Gillett and has since produced four highly successful shows: The Alchemist at The White Bear in 2012, London Cuckolds in 2013, The Final Revelation of Sherlock Holmes, and A Christmas Carol in 2014, the latter three at the Pleasance Islington in London.

Dracula will be the company’s fifth show and their Edinburgh Fringe debut.

…audience members will revel in the boisterous hilarity.  The Stage on The Alchemist

This has trimmings galore and is by far the best staged version I have seen. Relevant, cheeky, modern and still insightful everyone should see this show. ***** London Theatre on Christmas Carol
