‘Dracula: The Bloody Truth’ is a theatrical retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel. It will expose that the events recorded in 1897 were not fiction at all....but fact. This brand new comedy theatre show will take audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby and into the world of the supernatural, educating us all on the perils of dealing with vampires.
Le Navet Bete (Dick Tracy) are committed to creating hilarious theatre shows using engaging and creative storytelling. Set shortly after 1897 audiences will be introduced to Professor Abraham Van Helsing educating the world on the actual events of Dracula through his first ever theatre tour which he himself has produced and is in fact...starring in.
Expect Professor Van Helsing and the three actors he has commissioned to present this true story through the mediums of song, dance, soliloquy, shadow puppets and even some Victorian parlour tricks that will always go exactly as planned...supposedly.
Directed by John Nicholson (Peepolykus) ‘Dracula: The Bloody Truth’ promises to have the vampires back in the ground and leave the audience flying high.

'The piece has great pace and time slipped by so quickly I couldn’t believe it when the interval suddenly arrived. The fast pace one-liner style script had me in stiches, I haven’t laughed that much at production in a long time. Still don’t believe me that Dracula can be funny? The production is currently touring, why not try and grab a seat at a different venue while you still can!' Razz Mag
