Award-winning playwright Neil LaBute’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula for the stage features a fierce female Van Helsing as the vampire hunter.
In this masterful adaptation, Neil LaBute brings a rich theatricality and his provocative way with language and story to the world of Count Dracula, Van Helsing, Jonathan Harker, and his beloved Mina—this time, with very much a mind of her own—infusing the classic gothic tale of terror, obsession, and pathos with a modern edge.
Chilling yet stylish in its atmosphere, dark yet deeply human in its emotional impact, Neil LaBute’s Dracula: A Thriller in 2 Acts is a tribute to both LaBute’s dramatic vision and the timelessness of Stoker’s novel.
“Like Harold Pinter, Neil LaBute understands language as power.”New York Times, Ben Brantley
“The most legitimately provocative and polarizing playwright at work today.”New York magazine, David Amsden
