Joe Zettelmaier's 'Dr. Seward's Dracula' gets a reading in Dublin
In the play, Dr. Seward, in 1895 London, has cut himself off from the rest of the world after losing his lover and friends to Dracula. He has been contacted by (Dublin native) author Bram Stoker, who wishes to tell his story. Soon, a series of murders occur, very similar to the ones Seward fought to stop, and the doctor must face demons both real and imagined to find the answers.
