"Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring."
The first live production on the Abbey Stage since March 2020 sees Irish playwright Sarah Hanly adapt Bram Stoker’s timeless and terrifying classic Dracula for the Abbey stage – but not as you know it.
A world premiere conceived and directed by Graham McLaren, the immersive production will be performed live by an actor, whose voice will be underscored and accompanied by a complete, binaural sound design.
A socially distanced audience will embark on a frightening journey into one of the world’s most compelling horror stories – seated alone, wearing headphones and a blindfold, immerse yourself in this intimate sensational experience for the ears and the imagination.
We’re busy preparing to safely welcome back our artists, staff and audiences to the building. This includes:
- Mandatory face masks
- Implementing 2m distancing from each seat in place
- Operating general admission – you’ll be directed to your allocated seat by our front of house team
- Using e-tickets where possible, which should be displayed on your phone
- Tickets cannot be sold at the box office
- Floor markings to aid social distancing
- Contactless payments are preferred, with the spending limit increasing to €50
- Providing table service only in our bars
- Reducing our bathroom capacity, with maximum signage displayed
