This new adaptation of the Dracula hints at a darker future, performed brilliantly by a cast of two – the historic surroundings of the London Library adds an extra bit of magic to proceedings.
The bookworm in me adores everything about libraries and they don’t get much more atmospheric, or historic, than The London Library, the world’s oldest independent lending library – and now a highly unconventional theatrical venue for Creation Theatre Company’s latest offering, Dracula.

As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Friday 8 February 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock reunites with Creation Theatre for their site-specific production of Dracula, spectacularly staged amongst the bookshelves at The London Library. Got any questions?
