In winter of 2020, a thrilling new repertory cycle at CSC brings to life two legendary Gothic nightmares, Dracula and Frankenstein. Widely known as a pair of macabre fantasies about blood-sucking vampires and man-made monsters, these chilling stories more truly scratch at the fundamental human fears of love and betrayal, while exposing the even truer horrors of basic human nature.

About the plays
Both terrifying and riotous, Kate Hamill’s Dracula confronts the sexism in Bram Stoker’s original work and subjugates it as a smart and disquieting feminist revenge fantasy. Kate’s signature style and postmodern wit upends this familiar tale of Victorian vampires and drives a stake through the heart of toxic masculinity.
Tristan Bernays’ Frankenstein is an electrifying metaphysical adaptation strongly rooted in the tradition of theatrical storytelling. Athletically performed by only two actors, this exhilarating retelling of Mary Shelley’s beloved novel boldly explores the creation myth while dissecting some of the most frightening aspects of the human psyche.
