First published in 1897, Bram Stoker’s classic novel, Dracula has become one of the defining monster stories in our culture. Through the years Stoker’s vampire has evolved through countless re-tellings in print and on screen, spawning a host of spin-offs and imitations. What is it about this monster that fascinates our imagination? How has Dracula changed over the years? And how does Stoker’s story of good vs. evil compare to our modern fantasy/science fiction genres? Join us as we explore Taproot’s new stage adaptation of this classic tale and talk to local experts about the meanings and metaphors contained within the vampire myth.
