Dracula is a 1924 stage play adapted by Hamilton Deane from the novel of the same name by Bram Stoker, and substantially revised by John L. Balderston in 1927. It was the first adaptation of the novel authorised by Stoker's widow, and has influenced many subsequent adaptations. The original production starred Raymond Huntley as Dracula; Deane had originally intended to play the title role.There’s nothing as thrilling to me as when I’m part of an audience so completely drawn in by a play we believe the danger on stage is 100% real.
