DORICULA - Dracula, but with a Doric twist

In 1894, while on holiday in Cruden Bay, Bram Stoker Bram Stoker was invited by the 18th Earl of Erroll to visit his humble home. A dark and foreboding sky combined with a sense of awe at the majestic structure before him and curiosity about the nobleman who ordered its construction and walked its candlelit hallways at night, is all reportedly real inspiration for the fantastical fictional Romanian castle in Dracula and its eccentric master.

The Production

Building on the success of previous shows, Modo is creating a new show based on the classic novel, Dracula, with a strong emphasis on the inspiration that Bram Stoker found in Slain’s Castle and the history of the area, during his frequent stays in Cruden Bay. The result is highly physical production that combines circus, and street theatre with infectious, atmospheric music, bringing to life one of the great classics and its debt to Aberdeenshire.

Doricula is an adaptable show suitable for both indoor and outdoor performances lasting approximately 45 minutes. For more information and booking, please contact:
