A Feminist Revenge Fantasy

A Feminist Revenge Fantasy
based on the novel by Bram Stoker
by Kate Hamill
directed by Jennifer Pennington
September 6-24, 2023
Live in the Bingham Theater

Kate Hamill’s thrilling Dracula is back by popular demand this fall! In this inventive adaptation that bounces between humor and horror, Hamill reimagines Bram Stoker’s vampire classic as a full-throated battle cry against toxic masculinity. No damsels in distress, no romanticized villains—just a gleeful stake through the heart of the patriarchy.
