Dracula: A Thriller in Two Acts
Neil LaBute, Bram Stoker
Before acclaimed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute became the creator and showrunner of Syfy’s new hit series Van Helsing, he had already adapted Bram Stoker’s Dracula for the stage—with a fierce female Van Helsing as the vampire hunter.
In this masterful adaptation, Neil LaBute brings a rich theatricality and his powerful and provocative way with language and story to the world of Count Dracula, Van Helsing, Jonathan Harker, and his beloved Mina—this time, with a mind of her own—infusing the classic gothic tale of terror, obsession, and pathos with a modern edge. Chilling yet stylish in its atmosphere, dark yet deeply human in its emotional impact, Neil LaBute’s Dracula: A Thriller in Two Acts is a tribute to both Neil LaBute’s dramatic vision and the timelessness of Stoker’s novel.
