In his one true composition of genius, Bram Stoker created a tale which stirs up what the Greeks meant their dramas to elicit: pity and horror. A hundred years and more later, the character of Count Dracula and some of the themes he personifies continue to fascinate western civilization reflected in a current resurgence of interest in vampire and occult storylines. Heyer’s Dracula Dark King masterfully envelops the audience in Dracula’s enigmatic world. The struggle between the allure of immortality and life’s pleasures and sorrows plays out in the late 1800’s between the harsh walls of Count Dracula’s castle in Transylvania and Dr. John Seward’s office and Sanatorium near London. Dracula Dark King casts a new light into Stoker’s shadows, but, unlike any other script, does so while returning to the grotesque beauties of the novel. It brings out Stoker’s buried psychological themes without damaging the way in which he kept them hovering tantalizingly just below the surface of his plot. A disturbingly beautiful play, Dracula Dark King is by far among the best adaptations available and worthy of consideration for any stage. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
