Before acclaimed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute became the creator and showrunner of Syfy's new hit series Van Helsing, he had already adapted Bram Stoker's Dracula for the stage—with a fierce female Van Helsing as the vampire hunter.In this masterful adaptation, Neil LaBute brings a rich theatricality and his powerful and provocative way with language and story to the world of Count Dracula, Van Helsing, Jonathan Harker, and his beloved Mina—this time, with 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 Two Acts is a tribute to both Neil LaBute's dramatic vision and the timelessness of Stoker's novel.
