New Bedford---Dracula, the classic gothic thriller, will open an eight show run at Your Theatre, Inc. on November 12, 2015. Written by Bram Stoker and adapted for stage by John L. Balderston, the play has a cast of eight South Coast actors and is directed by Stephen R. Kay of Swansea.
The play follows Lucy Seward, daughter of the physician in charge of a sanatorium near London, who has a mysterious illness. Doctor Van Helsing, a family friend, suspects a vampire that roams the earth by night sucking the blood of victims to sustain its earthly life. With the help of Lucy’s father and her fiancé, Harker, they search for the fiend among the sanatorium patients. They widen their search to include the new occupants of the estate next door, not wanting to leave any stone unturned in their quest to rid the world of the supernatural terror. The identity of the fiend is found at last and its ghost is finally laid to rest in a striking and novel manner
