In these fictional featurettes, our performers, filmmakers and writers deliver a creative conversation about what it’s like to take on their role. Each of these short pieces delves into a character from the production, digging a little deeper into what makes them tick.
Chapter 1: Riana Duce (Mina Harker)
“It’s quite a challenge performing Mina Harker. I really like her. I mean, who wouldn’t? She’s got a lot of attitude.”
Chapter 2: Matt Prendergast (DS Donaldson)
“Mina challenges his moral principles, his belief systems. He’s a rationalist, I suppose, and she presents him with a version of evil that he can’t fathom.”
Chapter 3: Adela Rajnović (WS Williams)
“[Mina and Williams] are both a kind of new woman. Mina was challenging Victorian attitudes and values, whereas [Williams] is challenging 1950s’ attitudes towards women.”
Documentary: Dracula: The Untold Story – The Process
Take a closer look behind the curtain and behind the camera and see all that it takes to bring a production like Dracula: The Untold Story to stage (and eventually screen) during a period like no other.
The cast and creatives took a moment during performance dates at The Lowry, Salford to reflect on what it’s been like to be a part of this unique interpretation of an iconic evil, and the pulsating process behind it all.
