Setting the Scene

This show is set around an innocent American schoolteacher, Nadia Naive, taking her class on a field trip to Transylvania. There, she meets and falls under the spell of a well known vampire, Dracula.

However, she has fallen in love with a vampire hunting, cross wielding, garlic chomping hero in the shape of Nick Necrophiliac, described as a young English doctor with a mission!

On her travels she meets all sorts of characters, a friendly innkeeper and his wife, Dracula’s Mother and his faithful sidekick Genghis and a good Irish priest.

Will good conquer evil, will Nick get his girl or will Dracula get his dinner?


Scenes take place in a classroom, on a big aeroplane, on a stony road, in a cosy inn, in a dark castle, in the countryside, in a dingy dungeon, in the castle crypt and most importantly, in your mind!
