In a season of Hackney Horror, Classic Spring presents the two greatest myths of the Gothic imagination, Frankenstein and Dracula Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, in their original theatrical versions.
With a single company telling these two epic stories in London's most Gothic auditorium, there is the chance, for those brave enough, of seeing both on Saturdays and Sundays!
Following their celebrated Oscar Wilde season in London's West End last year, Classic Spring bring two of the world's most terrifying tales to London's most beautiful and atmospheric theatre, Hackney Empire.
From 1897, came Dracula, Bram Stoker's chilling telling of the darkest human obsessions.
Stoker's own theatrical version, only performed once before at the Lyceum by Henry Irving's company, will form the basis for a new adaptation of this terrifying myth of repression and possession.
