Bram Stoker

“Listen to them — Children of the night. What music they make!”

Riley’s farm is proud to bring back Dracula to the stage! Winner of three Inland Theatre League awards!

The year is 1897.  A christian solicitor from London, Jonathan Harker, has been given the task to journey to Transylvania, and settle estates with one Count Dracula. On his journey he is repeatedly warned of an evil presence that lies in Castle Dracula. Harker journeys on in spite of the ill warnings, only to discover that there does lie a true evil within the Count’s unearthly home.

Riley’s Farm Theatre Company invites you to travel back in time to visit the Victorian world of Bram Stoker, and his timeless tale of good against evil in our stage adaptation of Dracula! Enjoy a bountiful, full-bodied meal, a succulent dessert, and a deliciously sinister plot. Don’t miss this classic tale of one of fiction’s most iconic villains!

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.”

Eric Drazin, Writer and Director of ‘Dracula – A Classic Tale.’
