Doctor Dracula


This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Doctor Dracula is an immersive, multi-media theatre experience, which examines the symbolic role of blood in mythology, religion and literature, and how it intersects with a cutting-edge, medical understanding of blood in the 21st century. The production presents a darkly magical vampiric world, bridging diverse time periods, and informed by the academic research of Prof. Nick Groom and Dr Luke Pilling of Exeter University and supported by The Wellcome Trust.

Praise for previous Four Of Swords shows:

A potent reminder of the power of theatre to shock, unsettle and make us question our most basic assumptions about what it is to be human. (Frankenstein, Gordon Richardson, Express & Echo)

Still trying to shake off the feeling that I saw something unexplainably real last night, and tell myself it was only theatre. (Macbeth, Teacher Feedback)

Audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the show (2hrs20 including a 20 minute interval). Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! A scene or two may happen outside, so wear a waterproof coat in case of damp weather. Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.


Four of Swords Theatre

Four of Swords Theatre appearing at this event

They are Sarah White and Philip Kingslan John, and Four Of Swords is a project born of Tarot, tequila, and the determination to deliver sensational theatre. They have worked in the past on a hugely ambitious adaptation of Jekyll And Hyde which was staged at Poltimore House just outside Exeter. J&H combined film, theatre and live music, and was a spectacular show unlike anything you have seen before!
