Dracula A Feminist Revenge Fantasy, Really Directed by Rebecca Rovezzi Oct 14–Nov 6, 2022 The Firehouse at the Parks at Walter Reed
Kate Hamill boldly reimagines Bram Stoker’s classic tale of vampires and finds new monsters just beneath the skin. The gothic tropes of villains who wear evil on their sleeve and damsels in distress are replaced by all-too-human monsters and ferocious women who stab at the heart of the patriarchy itself. A site-specific production, DRACULA will perform in the appropriately haunted disused fire house at The Parks at Historic Walter Reed.
“The world women inhabit in this loose, rollicking adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel is frightening precisely because it’s not so different from our own… It scares us not with monsters, though it certainly has those, but with the sinister prospect of women’s dehumanization at the hands of men empowered by law and intractable custom. Hamill’s “Dracula” is about the expectation that women will bend themselves to the rigid frame of ladylike behavior, no matter how it deforms them.” – NY Times
