Dracula in a Time of Climate Change (2009)

With rivers rising, ice caps melting and blood becoming ever more toxic, Dracula is faced with a dilemma: if the humans he feeds on go extinct, what happens to vampires? A play about love, bloodsucking, the perils of activism and the end of the world.

Praise for Dracula in a Time of Climate Change:

Eye Weekly: “A whole bunch of bloody good one-liners and winning performances by Scott Kettles as Dracula and, especially, Susanna Jones as his Igor-like henchman Renfield.”

The Torontoist: “Best Pint-Sized Scene-Stealer: Susanna Jones in her perfect portrayal of Renfield in Dracula in a Time of Climate Change. This girl needs a show of her own.”

Ryerson Free Press: “Dracula In a Time of Climate Change is a fun story, with an excellent script, but is really held together by Dracula’s hilarious fish-out-of-water act, stunning one liners and multiple impaling references.”

Driven Magazine: “intriguing… the perfect combination of Bram Stoker and Al Gore”

Without Annette: “Music & multimedia add nice depth to a show that, thanks to Dracula’s dry wit and unfaltering accent and Renfield’s mugging and physical comedy, is funny and enjoyable.”

Peanutfish productions: “If you’re reading this in Toronto, you’ve just got to go and see this show, and that’s all there is to it.”

Salgood Sam’s Work Diary: “a very entertaining vaudevillian romp with silly dance sequences and all. Scott Kettles as Dracula is dead on dead pan; Susanna Jones as Renfield is a scene stealer”… “the story is snappy and silly timely satire”

next project: Rob Ford and the Mysterious Case of the Flying Anarchist
