Synopsis of the Story and Presentation

When Jonathan Harker goes to Transylvania on business a dark chain of events is triggered.  Harker is locked into Castle Dracula as the story moves to North Yorkshire where Miss Lucy Westerna is killed and Count Dracula is the main suspect.  Harker, Dr Seward and Van Helsing set out to trap Count Dracula but cannot stop him attacking Jonathan’s wife, Mina.  Our heroes pursue the Count from England to Transylvania where they finally kill Dracula and avenge Lucy.  This is a fast paced comic presentation based on Bram Stoker’s original story.  Presented in assembly/conference style.
