A feminist revenge fantasy, really

Based on the novel by Bram Stoker

By Kate Hamill

9/30-10/23 (no show on 10/14)

---“One of this Fall’s 10 Shows to See” – Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe

---"Action-packed, funny, scary and perfect for the Halloween month" - Tom Boudrot, New England Theater Mirror

---"Abundantly clever...a rip-roaring production" -- Michael Dale, Broadway World

One hundred and twenty five years after its publication, Dracula has continued to thrill and be interpreted by every generation in turn. And now, in the New England premiere of a bold new adaptation, award-winning playwright-actor Kate Hamill sinks her teeth into the sexism in Bram Stoker's classic.

The result is a fun, fearless ride when the Count meets his match – and the #MeToo movement – in a fast-paced, theatrical tour de force.

One of the most-produced playwrights in America for 3 years running, Hamill has been deliberate about creating feminist, female-centered classics – whether in new stories or adaptations of such works as Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Little Women and The Scarlet Letter.

Dracula is directed for The Umbrella Stage Company by Michelle Aguillon, with Scenic Design by Melody Hsu, Costumes by Anna Silva, and Lighting Design by SeifAllah Salotto-Cristobal. It features Dominic Carter*, Gabrielle Hatcher, Maria Hendricks, Bowen Huang, Sara Jones, Joseph Jude, Lisa San Pascual*, Em Sheeran and Dustin Teuber.

Performances run September 30 - October 23, 2022 (no show 10/14) Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 3PM
