Event:
See The Vampire Lord As You've Never Seen 'Him' Before
This is the vampire lord, Count Dracula, as you have never seen him before.

For a start, the 'him' is actually a 'her', as an all-female cast turns the Dracula myth on its head in this audacious new production, entitled Dracula: The Kisses.

Dracula: The Kisses
See Dracula in an all-female cast


The Scary Little Girls theatre company is taking what promises to be a wildly entertaining romp on the road, including a visit to the Lichfield Garrick theatre in February, following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival last year.

The artist-led theatre company aims to actively promote the artistic work of women in all aspects of theatrical story-telling, and also seeks to tell stories and promote characters which are usually portrayed from one perspective only.

So it is that Dracula: The Kisses breaks completely new ground with an all-female cast of nine.

Packed with a wealth of vividly drawn and larger-than-life characters, the classic gothic story of Dracula takes off in unexpected and unimaginable directions.

Expect Dracula: The Kisses to be enriched with a wealth of new material, making the story both hauntingly familiar yet utterly unpredictable as it sets out to explore sexuality, religious values, politics and feminism.

Audiences could be in for a fright night


But audiences can also expect it to retain the darkness that is quintessential Dracula.

Dracula: The Kisses plays at the Lichfield Garrick on Friday 12 February at 7.30pm, with other confirmed dates taking place in March.

Tickets for the Lichfield performance cost £15 (£10 students) and can be booked online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling the Box Office on 01543 412121.
