Dracula has 47 ratings and 1 review. Ebster said: The thing I liked best about this adaptation is that Renfield is a major character. He’s my favorite ch. Dracula by Bram Stoker, and the play by Liz Lochhead. I have a love-hate relationship with this book. It’s fascinating, it’s quite a fun read in many ways, and it has. But in Liz Lochhead’s feminist Dracula the sexual politics implicit in the original become Dracula at Theatre by the Lake (Keith Pattison).

There’s all that concentration on modern technology typewriters, gramphones, rail travel across Europe of the time and how it helps the heroes against the monster The biggest thing in terms of illness, of course, is the lunatic Renfield.

I don’t think it’s the ultimate adaptation I’m looking for, but it’s still pretty good and I’d someday love to see it performed. Liz Lochhead I’ve also found some extracts from the play I put up a while ago here. Ideal for schools and drama groups, this Dracula lochhead all the more chilling for the respect it shows for Stoker’s original nightmare creation.

Nick Hern Books | Dracula (stage version)ByBram Stoker, Adapted byLiz Lochhead,

Acclaimed poet and playwright Liz Lochhead’s Dracula stays refreshingly close to Bram Stoker’s classic vracula. I tilt at the big, oval mirror in its mahogany. Plus it’s a high-stress job, and I bet doctors have always had a reputation for drug use, not just today.
