Doctor Dracula at Ashton Court

About

***Due to the ongoing Covid-19 developments, please check with the venue before attending in case of any changes to the event, or possible cancellation.***

Historic Bristol landmark Ashton Court is hosting an exciting new immersive theatre project.

Written, produced, and performed by Four of Swords, a production company using theatrical story-telling techniques in unusual and evocative places, Doctor Dracula integrates actors' performances with film projection and live music, and puts audience members firmly in the thick of the action.

Informed by the academic research of Prof. Nick Groom and Dr Luke Pilling from the University
of Exeter, the production aims to improve understanding of rare and treatable medical conditions; and to explore the links between mythology, culture, and medicine. The production's video projections add texture and depth to the vampire world, but also detail actual patient experiences of blood conditions such as haemochromatosis and anaemia.

Haemochromatosis is a genetic condition caused by an overload of iron in the blood, found in about one in 200 people in the UK. However, only about one case in 5000 is ever diagnosed. A simple prevention and cure for haemochromatosis is to give blood (which can be safely used by the NHS as a usual donation). Doctor Dracula aims to raise the profile of these little known disorders, and to promote NHS blood donations.

As with previous Four of Swords productions, audiences will be on their feet for the duration of the 2 hour show. Don't worry, there is an interval! Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car. This show is too creepy for under 11s.
