From pages to performance…
“There have been many stage and film variations of this particular piece of literary art. I am grievous to stay many do not do the story justice. Stoker’s work has been misshapen, cheapened, and worst of all, charged with sexual undertones. In spite of this dismal fact, Riley’s Farm now strives to capture Dracula’s true character in this particular stage adaptation. When the title reads ‘Dracula – a classic tale,’ we hope to deliver just that. We wish to bring the audience the true struggle of the Cross held up against the cowering vampire, good vs. evil. This is the story of Dracula. It needs no changing. Read Stoker’s book, it may give you a different outlook on the vampire. We hope you enjoy our loyal production.”
