Dracula: Die Laughing announced as part of Whitby Goth Weekend Fringe, April 2014

April’s Whitby Goth Weekend this year is looking bigger than ever!

For the first time ever this year, the official Whitby Goth Weekend Fringe events will include a theatrical comedy – one that we at Cat on the Wall think you’ll agree is very fitting indeed..!

Dracula: Die Laughing, written by internationally produced playwright Ed Waugh (With hits under his belt including Dirty Dusting, Waiting for Gateaux and Maggie’s End) tells the story of the famous Count Dracula escaping the clutches of vampire hunters by blending into the onslaught of Goths at the UK’s most famous alternative festival.

Directed by Gareth Hunter, it promises to show Dracula as we’ve never seen him before!

The show has made ripples in the comedy scene already, having practised with sell out audiences at small venues in Durham, Sunderland and North Shields to a very positive reaction!

Dracula: Die Laughing will be performed at the Coliseum Theatre in Whitby on Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27.

The Saturday shows are at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday’s shows are at 11am and 2pm. The age recommendation is 14+.

Tickets cost £10 (£8 for concessions) and can be obtained from the box office (01947 825000) or via 07751246176.

It’s not just for Goths either – organisers, cast and creators all hope to see attendance from anybody who’ll get the joke – effectively anybody from our favourite seaside town.

Remember that Jordan, head honcho of Cat on the Wall, and Matthew, our favourite photographer, will be attending this year’s Goth weekend – if you see them, say hello!
