Bristol Industrial Museum 2-5 March 19.30

If you are planning a stroll along Bristol's harbour side at the beginning of March you might want to take some garlic or a wooden stake because vampires are on the loose!

The University of the West of England’s Centre for Performing Arts (CPA) presents its latest dramatic production, the classic gothic story of Dracula at the L Shed, Bristol Industrial Museum from 2 - 5 March with each performance starting at 19.30.

A cast of talented local students, joined by professional performer David Vossen in the title role, will perform a special adaptation by poet and playwright Liz Lochhead. Her trademark gutsy style meets Bram Stoker's rich storytelling, resulting in a script which has both wit and passion.

The Guardian newspaper has described this adaptation as 'powerful and poetic', and one which, after the Hammer Horror spoofs, 'restores real tragedy to Bram Stoker's tale'.

In the hands of professional director Geni Hall-Kenny, the stage looks set for an evening of thrilling and chilling drama. Enter in those who dare...

For tickets and further information call the Centre for Performing Arts at UWE on O117 32 82067. Tickets are £8 (£6 concessions).

Special offer - buy tickets for Dracula and Kiss me, Kate for only £15 (£10 concessions) for both productions. The CPA is also presenting Kiss me, Kate at L Shed from 9-12 March.
