Up Next!
DRACULA: PRINCIPIUM ET FINIS
NOV 16, 2020. 7:30 PM

As the weather turns cold, The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society offers chills of a different kind with reinterpretations of the first and last chapters – the beginning and the end, Principium et Finis – of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, each written and performed in the style of a classic radio series, including commercials, music and sound effects.

Featuring:

Pricipium
“Dracula’s Guest” by Eric Webster

Before arriving at Dracula’s castle, Jonathan Harker stops at a cemetery to seek shelter from a storm, but his refuge quickly becomes a living nightmare. This chilling tale of non-stop supernatural dangers is adapted for radio from the excised first chapter of Bram Stoker’s Dracula!

and

Finis
“The Red Six” by Tim Uren

The six survivors of Dracula’s bloody reign in London have sworn to track the vampire to his home and end his monstrous life once and for all. The final chapters of Bram Stoker’s are retold as an action-packed chase across Europe, where death and damnation await the hunters if they should fail!
