PREVIEW: Dracula, King’s Head Theatre

From the 9th to the 26th November, Let Them Call It Mischief will bring their take of the classic Bram Stoker story to London following a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s Pleasance Courtyard. 


Let Them Call It Mischief‘s production sees Dracula, a sensitive soul from Transylvania, arrive in England in an attempt to break his curse by finding true love, learn the leg before wicket rule, and possibly empower the suffragette movement along the way.

Described as a combination of 39 Steps and Blackadder meet gothic horror, the production has been written by Danny Wainwright and Daniel Hallissey  as well as being directed by Danny Wainwright.

It will star Sarah Bradnum, Alyssa Noble, Rob Cummings, Anthony Pinnick and Graham Elwell.

Talking about bringing the production to London, director Danny Wainwright said: “It’s vonderful to be able to bring Dracula back to life in his adopted home of London at the King’s Head. We’ve got five amazing actors getting under the skin of twenty characters in this fast paced, funny and very silly adaptation of the timeless classic. If you want to laugh for an hour, get your fangs into this one!”

Since forming in 2012, Let Them Call it Mischief has become well known for their imaginative approach to best-loved classics which have included The Alchemist at The White Bear in 2012, London Cuckolds in 2013, The Final Revelation of Sherlock Holmes, and A Christmas Carol in 2014.

Dracula will make an appearance at the King’s Head Theatre from the 9th to the 26th November. For more information and to book tickets visit:
