Dracula

Dracula was first published in 1897 and has never been out of print. It has been the subject of countless bastardisations and adaptations, so much so, that the very word 'DRACULA' has permeated our consciousness in a way the industrious theatre manager Bram Stoker would never have dreamed possible...
But what is Dracula really about? Why has it endured when other, better written novels have not? Who was Mr Abraham Stoker and why was he in thrall to the actor/manager Henry Irving?

Ullaloom bid you welcome to the subconscious mind of Bram Stoker...Enter freely and of your own will...
Ullaloom Theatre Company present their own unique vision of Stoker's greatest work in an adaptation that does not feature a Count in evening dress, or a love story, but is true to the cold hearted and savage spirit of the text!

Dracula

Orignally directed by Clive Mendus of Theatre de Complicite...Dracula was reworked  by Tanushka Marah, the award winning artistic director of 'Company Collisions'.  You can visit their website at: www.companycollisions.com.

Production

Bram Stoker's NIghtmare...Dracula was bolstered by a fantastic and original score comprising elements of heavy metal, synth and classical all composed by Carl Pownall, formerly of Zen Baseball Bat. Here are a selection of tracks for you to peruse.

1: Intro Metal
2: Lucy's soul ascends
3: 
Irving's fanfare
4: 
Lucy's attack

Set, props, stakes and glowing crucifixes were designed by Mike Gray. Mike has worked with the company on all our projects and has built us three coffins, a torture chair, a torture rack, a fully articulated skeletal hand and many other ghastly masterstrokes of macabre genius! Mike is the assistant stage manager for the Liverpool Playhouse and Everyman Theatre.
Lights were designed by Paul Skinner, Paul is another long time collaborator of the company and worked with us on both 'Macabre' and its predecessor, 'Theatre of the Macabre'. 

A chilling, disturbing, breathtaking romp through the mind of a genius!

It‘s no mean feat creating horror on a bare stage devoid of technical wizardry to wow and excite, but Ullaloom did just that with only the very clever use of lights, music, and dry ice. But it was the outstanding performances by the actors that made the fear, the chill and the nightmarish horror of this story so very real.
