In honour of the great horror classic Dracula, we offer a page from Bram Stoker’s original 1897 playscript he adapted from his novel. Not only is Dracula one of the most famous novels in any genre, it is the progenitor of the countless dark descendants that have followed.
Bram Stoker (1847–1912) was an Irish author who, during his lifetime, was best known for being the personal assistant to actor Henry Irving and the manager of the famed Lyceum Theatre in London. He was also a respected theatre critic and a personal friend to Oscar Wilde.

The play stayed close to the gothic novel, but the author pared away material from the narrative to make it more visual.-Learn More-
