Stoker's Dracula is a 75 minute solo adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic tale of terror. Unlike other adaptations, this play uses only the novel's original text of diary entries, letters, and newspaper articles. A solo tale of terror that has received rave reviews from critics and audiences and been performed in theaters, museums, and people's homes.
"The script, written by Hitchens himself, was a condensed and streamlined version of Bram Stoker's classic novel -- and it brilliantly conveyed the eerie and terrifying qualities of the original. As an actor, Hitchens was mesmerizing, playing all the major roles with great verve and conviction, in a variety of convincing voices . . . The intimacy of the space made the story particularly compelling -- you've probably never seen an audience so rapt and still. The effect was of being in a psychic space midway between theater and storytelling. Which is to say, terrifying and wonderful. Very much what it must have felt like on that long ago night outside of Geneva when Dr. Polidori first told the tale which introduced vampires to the Western canon. It was an evening of dark glamor. I felt privileged to be there."- Award-winning author Michael Swanwick.
