One hundred and twenty five years after its publication, Dracula has continued to thrill and be interpreted by every generation in turn. And now, in the New England premiere of a bold new adaptation, award-winning playwright-actor Kate Hamill sinks her teeth into the sexism in Bram Stoker’s classic.

The result is a fun, fearless ride when the Count meets his match – and the #MeToo movement – in a fast-paced, theatrical tour de force.

One of the most-produced playwrights in America for 3 years running, Hamill has been deliberate about creating feminist, female-centered classics – whether in new stories or adaptations of such works as EmmaSense & SensibilityLittle Women and The Scarlet Letter.

Running Sept. 30-Oct. 30, 2022, Dracula is directed for The Umbrella Stage Company by Michelle Aguillon, with Scenic Design by Melody Hsu,  Costumes by Anna Silva, and Lighting Design by SeifAllah Salotto-Cristobal. It features Dominic Carter*, Gabrielle Hatcher, Maria Hendricks,  Bowen Huang, Sara Jones, Joseph Jude, Lisa San Pascual*, Em Sheeran and Dustin Teuber.

The Umbrella is ADA accessible, a proud partner in the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s EBT Card-to-Culture program, and provides free parking and free admission to its visual arts galleries.
