Following last year’s run at Sutton House, Tea Break Theatre’s immersive thriller will return to the venue as part of the National Trust’s ‘Queered Season’.

Tea Break Theatre’s production is based on Bram Stoker’s classic story and shines a light on some of the forgotten identities in the original novel.

This Hallowe’en, step inside Sutton House to discover a legacy of blood that stretches through the ages. A promenade theatrical journey that will lead you into the darkest corners of the house and the deepest depths of your nightmares. Join us on this immersive, visceral experience that will transport you back in time to uncover the story you only thought you knew.

Talking about the news Katharine Armitage said: “It is a real honour to be bringing the Count back to life at Sutton House as part of their ‘Queered Season’. This show is all about shaking the dust off a Victorian text, peering into its innards and then throwing it onstage to create something both classic and completely new.”

As well as featuring designs by Isobel Power Smith, the production is set to star Chris Dobson, Molly Small, Jeff Scott, Jennifer Tyler, Jon-Paul Rowden and Louise Wilcox.

Dracula will be performed at Sutton House from the 17th October until the 4th November. For more information and to book tickets visit:
