This unconventional re-telling of the Dracula story merges Victorian repressions, contemporary angst, and archetypal obsessions. Mina and Lucy are central in this version of the classic horror tale which comments on the Dracula myth as it plays out before us in all its mystery.

The play explores both sexual obsession and sexual liberation, as well as themes of love, friendship, science, superstition, and the monster within us all. With its witty text and dark humour, Dracula features a visually lush and highly physical staging for a vibrant cast of characters.

Visit the Dig Deeper website for cast and crew bios, facts about the play, and other fun ways to engage the production!

    October 30, 2020

    Lorne Cardinal was the first-ever Indigenous student to be admitted into the UAlberta's BFA acting program in 1990. “It's paid itself off numerous times - the technique and craft they teach at the U of A are second to none. I never looked back.” In recognition of this stellar career since graduating, Cardinal received the prestigious August Schellenberg Award of Excellence earlier this month from the Toronto-based ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival - the world’s largest Indigenous film and media arts festival! Congratulations, Lorne!
