Being a bit of a goth, you can imagine how delighted I was to be asked along to the press night for Mark Bruce’s superlative and erotic reimagining of Dracula at the Bristol Old Vic. I usually write reviews within a day or so of the performance but my illness means that I’ve fallen a bit behind. Sorry! However, although this show has now moved on from Bristol – it’s currently on tour though (it’s in Manchester on Friday and Saturday this week before moving on to Birmingham next Wednesday) so you should be able to see it elsewhere.

It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
