If you thought ‘The Woman in Black’ was scary be prepared to be petrified by Jonathan Harker and Dracula.
This new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s iconic masterpiece on vampirism sees Gerard McCarthy playing both Jonathan Harker, whose diaries chronicle the bloody tale, and the greatest supernatural character of all time - Dracula - as well as several other characters!
Using multiple cameras, backing screens, projections, surround sound and a newly commissioned score, this solo tour de force will make audiences scream.
Adapted and Directed by Michael Poynor with original music by Mark Dougherty, ‘Jonathan Harker and Dracula’ will come to The Braid, Ballymena, this Friday, October 17.
Gerard McCarthy is one of Northern Irelands most exciting and versatile young actors. He is best known for TV roles in The Fall, Hollyoaks, Vikings and the new BBC comedy Puppy Love.
Gerard recently starred in The Globe’s production of The Merry Wives of Windsor in London and New York and his debut feature film A Nightingale Falling is due for general release in the autumn of 2014.
ITV soapstar Kym Marsh, who played Annette in the West End production of Saturday Night Fever and recently performed in Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues, along the Rachel Tucker who played Elphaba in West End production Wicked and is soon about to open on Broadway in The Last Ship, and Jayne Wisener from Tim Burdon’s Sweeny Todd, will appear in pre-recorded cameo roles, as the ‘Brides of Dracula’.
Craving for a great night out, and something to really sink your teeth into – this show is not to be missed!
