Bram Stoker’s classic vampire story will be brought to life with a Doric twist across the north-east in the next few weeks.
Award-winning local circus company Modo will be performing Doricula in Cruden Bay and at Slains Castle – the venue that is thought to have inspired Stoker’s novel.
While on holiday in Cruden Bay, the author was invited to visit the home which inspired him to create the fictional Romanian castle in Dracula.
Doricula is a highly physical outdoor performance which combines circus, fire and street theatre with music in a haunting setting.
Limited seating will be available for the 45-minute show.
At Slains Castle, the performances will be at 7pm on September 19, 21, 26 and 28, and October 17 and 19.
Parking is available at the Main Street car park in Cruden Bay and at the car park on the Longhaven to Cruden Bay road, with a 10-minute walk to the castle and limited disabled parking.
A bus is available for Saturday performances leaving and returning to the Peterhead Community Centre.
Tickets cost £5 for adults or £3 concession or £10 adults and £8 concession including the bus.
You can purchase them from Modo or www.ticketsource.co.uk/modo
Modo has advised people to bring torches, wear sensible shoes and prepare for the weather as the show is outdoor and the path has limited lighting.
