A new immersive version of Dracula will explore themes of complicity and willful ignorance in situations where powerful men are accused of dark deeds.

The show plays at Islington Metal Works from 24 March to 2 April 2020.

Step by step, the audience is led back in time to their own private horror story: with scenes occurring simultaneously in separate rooms and objects spread throughout the space providing extra context.

No single audience member will be able to experience the complete tale in one night.

Instead, you can pick which characters to follow, make choices about whose side of the story you see, and decide which hidden secrets you go in search of.

Different characters have different perspectives on the events of Autumn 1895.

The show will be followed by music in the bar, and, for VIP Ticket Holders, a free drink plus post-show Q&A with Oliver Thorn (Dracula, creator of Philosophy Tube) and chaired by one of the other producers: Nicholas Benjamin (Director) and Niamh Handley-Vaughan.
