THE STORY: There is an alternate version of Steven Dietz’s DRACULA that requires fewer actors. It is only available in manuscript.
This spirited variation of Steven Dietz’s widely-produced adaptation moves Dracula’s intended bride, Mina Murray, to the very center of the story. While retaining all the theatrical elements and narrative sweep of his original, Dietz makes Mina the primary detective in a mystery which targets her soul as the Count’s ultimate goal. This version has a slightly smaller cast than Dietz’s original, and may be performed without an intermission.
