Abe’s Story

The suitably gothic and opulent Chapel Royal in Dublin Castle, Bram Stoker’s workplace for over a decade, will play host to an exclusive screening of the award-winning animated film Abe’s Story by award winning animator and director Adam H. Stewart.

Telling the story of an overworked writer, Abe, who is inspired by his day job in the theatre to create a bloody brilliant novel in Victorian London, it won the Best Animated Sequence in a Short Film Award at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director and acclaimed Bram Stoker biographer Paul Murray, on the influences that helped shape the greatest horror novel of all time; Dracula.

Venue Support in association with the Office of Public Works.

Suitable for ages 12+ (under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult). Some blood and flashes of light (but not strobing) in the animated film.

Venue is wheelchair accessible but there are no accessible toilets in the Chapel Royal.
