THE FREE READERS ENSEMBLE Presents: Dracula - A mystery thriller by John L. Bladerston, Hamilton Dean, and Brampton Stoker

Dracula is a stage play written by Hamilton Deane in 1924, then revised by John L. Balderston in 1927. It was the first authorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. After touring in England, the original version of the play appeared at London's Little Theatre in July 1927, where it was seen by the American producer Horace Liveright. Liveright asked Balderston to revise the play for a Broadway production that opened at the Fulton Theatre in October 1927. This production starred Bela Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role.

This local actor-based ensemble is in its 26th year showcasing the magic of words; from playwrights and poets to authors and screenwriters. The group brings thought-provoking, entertaining and sometimes controversial works to life. Programs are offered at no charge. Free-will donations are appreciated and help cover costs.
