Nosferatu, The Vampyr

Nosferatu, The Vampyr

March 19-28, 2020

Presented by Sparkhaven Theatre

Nosferatu, The Vampyr is a subversion of a tale known too well, delving into the queerness of horrors of then and now, told through drama, song, film, riddle, and lip-sync. This rendition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and F.W. Murnau’s film follows Harker and Will as they navigate love, plague, and sacrifice, all while the paranoia sets in.

Written by M. Sloth Levine, featuring an original score by Alissa Voth, directed by Hannah Pryfogle, and performed by a mostly non-binary cast, Nosferatu, The Vampyr is an unearthly original play that delights and terrifies.
