This version of the Dracula legend based on the 1897 Bram Stoker novel is set in the English countryside in 1911 where several village girls have died under mysterious circumstances. Dr. Seward presides over a nearby mental hospital and the locality has acquired a new resident, Count Dracula! A trio of doctors, a young reporter and a stouthearted English lord battle the Count for possession of the lovely heroine. With a dash of Holmesian sleuthing in this Baskerville hound country setting, our heroes save the heroine and dispatch the Count in the traditional manner.
"A genuine old fashioned horror thriller." - N.Y. Daily News.
"Funny, serious, scary, hilarious [and] ... bloody enjoyable, cross my heart." - WABC TV.
The Passion of Dracula first appeared at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City on September 28, 1977.
