Presentation DRAKULA


“May 3rd. I left Munich at eight o’clock in the evening on May 1st and arrived at Vienna early the next morning”

With these words begins Bram Stoker’s famous novel and the adventure of Jonathan Harker, the unprepossessing junior lawyer from Exeter to whom is given the mission of travelling to Transilvania to carry out the sale of a property to “a gentleman native to the area”. In this way begins his voyage of initiation, a journey that will take him far from the Christian world, far from the Victorian civilisation with which he is familiar and will place him under the dark and pagan influence of Count Dracula. It is here that he will find what he fears and at the same time what he has always longed for… his transformation.

In this free adaptation by Rupert Marshall Firewalk Theatre seeks to enter into the world of ambiguity; the ambiguity that lies between good and bad, beautiful and ugly, masculine and feminine, the hazy barrier between love and hate, happiness and sadness, dream and reality. It is a Dracula which opens all roads to possibility, where all is available for those who are willing to take the risk to make their dreams come true.

Four actors give life to twenty-four characters assisted by a sound and light technician. The play lasts one hour and thirty minutes. There exist two versions, in Spanish and in English
