After a young woman dies of a swift and mysterious illness, her dearest friend, Lucy Westphal, begins showing similar symptoms. As a series of coincidences unfold, Lucy’s friends realize that they must rally to protect her from a sinister, ancient evil—Count Dracula, who has Lucy in a dangerous thrall. Sacrifices are made, love is tested, and madness is confronted in this adaptation of Bram Stoker’s gothic tale of desire and blood.
A patient at Dr. Seward’s asylum, of unique appetites and an unfortunate sense of humor.
A vicious supernatural demon; the shape Dracula assumes when unconcerned about appearances. Part zombie, part werewolf, the Monster loves a good chase and is always thirsty.
A beautiful undead woman in her late twenties. We will see her in various stages of vampirism.
Dr. Seward’s loyal assistant. Irish. Tries to conceal working class roots with an air of propriety.
Abram Van Helsing
A professor. Older but still in good physical condition, with a razor mind and an intense interest in the supernatural.
Dr. Thomas Seward
An intelligent, fine young Englishman in his early thirties. The former fiancé of the late Mina Grant. A deeply caring, vulnerable human being.
A villain who revels in the pain and suffering of others. Capable of enormous charm and courtly manners when such affectations are called for.
Three Vampires with seductive ways and dire purposes.
Female, between 7 & 10. Wears a communion dress.
An attendant at the asylum. A rough customer; not entirely a brute, but capable of violent behaviour when pushed to it.
A lovely young Englishwoman. Extremely intelligent, and when not being drained of blood on a regular basis, quite vivacious.
A young solicitor. Handsome, impetuous, madly in love with Lucy.
