The return of Dracula
9:37am Friday 3rd August 2012 in What's on
DRACULA is returning to Whitby Abbey for a summer season of dramatic retellings of Bram Stoker’s novel within the gothic backdrop of the abbey ruins.
Each Saturday and Sunday during the school holidays, a troupe of four actors will lead visitors on a 40-minute promenade performance.
Stoker’s gothic horror story has been distilled into a family-friendly performance, suitable for children aged eight and above, abridged by Simon Kirk.
Performances of Dracula will take place at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm every Saturday and Sunday in the summer holidays. The Time Traveller activities will run daily from 11am to 5pm; the site is open from 10am to 6pm.
