Life After Stoker: Dracula’s Continued Relevance

Belvedere House

Belvedere House, 6 Great Denmark St, Dublin 1

Sat 27 Oct , 4.30pm

Tickets: €13 (incl. €1 booking fee)

Would Bram Stoker recognise what Dracula has become? Since his wife Florence Balcombe waged war on cult film Nosferatu, Dracula’s place in popular culture has been a contested one, with the character playing no small role in spawning the vampire subculture in twentieth-century pop culture.

This panel discussion will include audio visual representations of Dracula through the ages, from the big screen to television. Novelist Frankie Gaffney (Trinity College Dublin), Stoker biographer Paul Murray and academic Dara Downey sit down with Donal Fallon (of ‘Come Here To Me’) to trash out the never-ending saga that is Dracula post-Stoker.

Age suitability: 14+ (Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)

Venue is wheelchair accessible, with some restrictions. Please advise box office staff at time of booking.  Email or phone +353 1 518 0599.
