Aproximately two hours with one ten-minute intermission.

A dramatized retelling of the mother of all vampire stories, Countess Dracula is set in 19th century New Orleans and New York. Portrayed as an African American woman, Dracula becomes an avenging angel against the high society of white patriarchy that seeks to oppress her and her people.


Countess Dracula promises a macabre bloodbath that you will not want to miss this Halloween.
