Balagan Theatre Presents The Transylvanian Clockworks by Don Nigro
A twisted, darkly comedic take on the Dracula myth, pitting Victorian sexual repression against erotically charged Gothic horror.
THE PLAY: What happens when a powerfully sensual Count from the dark woods of Romania obsesses over a photograph of three alluring women? What happens when that Count journeys to London where Jack the Ripper is eviscerating unaccompanied ladies? How does this affect Victorian men threatened by the Count’s hypnotic eroticism –which seems to have the power to unlace corsets? Don Nigro’s vision of what truly created the Dracula myth is especially relevant in today’s atmosphere of conservative repression. Nigro investigates the Dracula myth in a powerful, complex, darkly funny and utterly terrifying vampire play unlike any you have ever experienced.
