Before Twilight and True Blood, only one vampire commanded “the children of the night.” In this blood-thirsty tale of unholy terror, Count Dracula slips into Victorian London with a cargo of his native Transylvanian soil—so he can rest between victims. The city seems helpless against his frightful power, and only one man, Dr. van Helsing, can stop the carnage. But to do this, he must uncover the vampire’s lair and pierce his heart with a wooden stake. Program note from Rosalind Ayres, director of the live performance by LA Theatre Works: “For centuries man has dreamed of a life beyond death. Chinese Emperors were buried with clay armies to protect them in the next world. Egyptian Pharaohs were entombed with all the belongings they would need in the afterlife. But how might it be possible to cheat death itself? Well, try the myth of the vampire. One who, by constantly drinking the ‘life force,’ the blood of others, could ensure eternal survival. In Charles Morey’s dramatization of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, the creed of the vampire and the Christian belief in ‘life everlasting’ is juxtaposed. It’s the eternal struggle between good and evil. Plus, the confidence of scientific beliefs and theory, marred only by that uncomfortable shaft of inexplicable fear when something goes ‘bump’ in the night. Enter Dracula…” An LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring David Selby as Abraham van Helsing, John Glover as Renfield, Simon Templeman as Count Dracula, Matthew Wolf as Arthur Holmwood, Moira Quirk as Lucy Westenra, Lisa O’hare as Mina Murray Harker, Nick Toren as Dr. John Seward, Karl Miller as Jonathan Harker, André Sogliuzzo as Maxwell and others, Sheelagh Cullen as Mrs. Westenra and others, Denise Carole as Tart and others. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
