Dracula by Bram Stoker

in a new adaptation by Ross McGregor

produced by Arrows & Traps Repertory Company

9 - 27 October, 7.30pm

 

“Listen to the children of the night.  What sweet music they make.”

Immortal only as long as he is able to drink the blood of the living, Count Dracula has come to London.  Setting his sights on Mina Murray, he embarks on a blood-fuelled path of seduction and devastation.  As Mina begins to hear the music of the night, her fiance Jonathan Harker and Professor Van Helsing must race to defeat Dracula, before it is too late.

This brand-new stage adaptation based on Bram Stoker’s monumental, genre-defining Gothic horror classic is brought to irresistible life as a spine-chilling masterpiece of fear.

Eight-time Off West End Award Nominated Arrows & Traps Theatre return to the Jack this Halloween after their sold-out run of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein last year, and their critically-acclaimed recent production of The White Rose.

 

 

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy

by Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu

produced by Emmanuel Nwosu & Initiative.dkf

30 October - 17 November, 7.30pm

 

“You ever look out of your estate and feel like there is something…Beautiful here…but nobody’s happy enough to see it?”

Mars is a street-smart, enthusiastic, lyrically-saturated man on-the-edge about to propose to the girl of his dreams in present-day London.

Bounty is a very quiet boy in a very loud Borough paddling through the 90s with this new politically charged Black identity swirling around him.

As the worlds of Mars and Bounty collide, can they find their place in these times or will they get chewed, swallowed and digested by it?

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy, by award-winning theatre-maker Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu, is a storytelling epic that melts timelines, lives, fantasy, Garage and Jungle and critiques Black British Protest in the broiling estates of London.

Supported by Just Add Milk Productions, Roehampton University and the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama

 

Radiant Vermin

by Philip Ridley

produced by First Knight Theatre Company

20 November - 1 December 7.30pm

 

Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family… But HOW??

In this diabolically funny, vicious dark comedy a government department has found an ingenious solution to the twin dilemmas of housing shortage and homelessness. Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing out loud at the horrors revealed in this wickedly funny play.

Home ownership is slipping out of reach: no matter how hard they work, it’s becoming more and more difficult for young people to buy a home of their own. Levels of homelessness are rising: more than 2,000 people a year will have no roof over their head and end up sleeping rough.

At a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family?
