New Year’s Eve, 1965, London, England.
Just before midnight, as revellers celebrate the beginning of another year, a young woman
enters Marylebone Police Station and confesses to a brutal murder.
She claims to be Mina Harker, the last living survivor of the intrepid group that witnessed
Count Dracula’s destruction 70 years before. But Mina Harker has not been seen since 1901.
And if she was alive, she would be ninety years old.
As Mina confesses to events that are much more terrifying than in the original, she retells
the events of Bram Stoker’s classic novel. She claims it’s the true story. The untold story.
And she must tell it now, before sunrise, before it’s too late, before…
Unfolding on stage as a live graphic novel, Dracula: The Untold Story is a chilling new version
of the classic gothic vampire tale that you thought you knew so well.
Using the latest digital technologies imitating the dog engage with the dark landscape of the
gothic with a renewed energy and political insight.
Fresh from their critically acclaimed adaptations of Heart of Darkness and Night of the Living
Dead TM and 123 years after its publication, imitating the dog take Bram Stoker’s seminal
gothic novel as the starting place for their radical exploration of our fascination with the
most enduring manifestation of evil in literature and cinema.
Take This Test (to find out if you’re a good person)
So, you give to charity, you lent your friend quite a lot of money and you always smile at passers-by, but are you a good person, deep down?
Our moderator Clare is almost certain that you are, and she’s ready to guide you through this online experience, which will (fingers-crossed) give you a certificate to prove it! She’s sure you’ll find it a fun and rewarding experience, whether you’re on your own, or with a few close friends or colleagues.
Featuring candid testimony and confessions from people across the country, you’ll need your moral compass engaged to separate what’s OK and what’s…well…not.
Take This Test is a new interactive digital piece from TalkShow which starts by prodding at the absurdity of personality tests, from Buzzfeed-style clickbait to psychometrics, before taking us somewhere else entirely, all to explore our sense of morality, and if anything can really be described as good, or bad.

"Who is Uncle Ray? Memories, like old photographs, come flooding back in black and white... So, when Uncle Ray came to visit once a year, I had no idea he had turned into glorious Technicolor. Standing at the edge of the yellow brick road. Crows would come from miles around just to eat from his field. Maybe not the best scarecrow. But an incredible dancer and my uncle - Uncle Ray Bolger.
The wonders of reality, imagination and family lore collide in this enchanting new dance duet starring David Bolger and street dancer, Donking Rongavilla.
