Shake & Stir
Space Theatre, Adelaide
Yesterday, I attended the matinee performance of Dracula. The play offered a faithful but condensed version of Bram Stoker's novel, and it worked well on the Space Theatre's intimate stage.
Managed with a cast of just six, the play lasted just over an hour and a half, without an interval, and I was riveted throughout.
Some of the best features of the production were:
- Excellent staging and effects, with great use of the revolve
- Clever combining of the Jack Seward/Quincey roles
- Atmospheric presentation
- Great performances, especially from Nick Skubij as Dracula
Dracula is playing until 16 September, so if you're in Adelaide, I highly recommend you grab a ticket.
