The Irish Dracula @ Museum Of Art, Ft. Lauderdale


Dramatic Reading on Thursday, February 6, 6:30 p.m.

Written by James E. Doan, B.A. in Literature from U.C., Santa Cruz, an M.A. in Folklore and Mythology from U.C.L.A., an M.A. in Celtic Languages and Literatures as well as a Ph.D. in Folklore and Celtic Studies from Harvard, The Irish Dracula: A Melodrama in Five Acts, is set in London and Co. Sligo, Ireland, in 1888. The play focuses on Bram Stoker and his relationship with the theatre director/Shakespearean actor Henry Irving of the Lyceum Theatre, for whom Stoker worked as business manager.  The other characters in the play are loosely based on those found in the novel and constitute real people with whom Stoker interacts.  Written as a melodrama, the dramatic reading at the museum will include a suite of Irish music performed by the Roaring Kelly Band.
