Dracula! The Radio Play was written by Phillip Grecian and is based on his own stage play and the 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, and of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. The radio show finds Count Dracula in England attempting to seduce more innocents.
