CAMBRIDGE UNI PRESS

After having impressed with one of our schools performances of MACBETH, FOUR OF SWORDS was approached to participate in a pilot project to develop online video resources to accompany the teaching of GCSE texts. We collaborated closely on the design of the MACBETH, JEKYLL & HYDE and FRANKENSTEIN components, as well as appearing as actors in the resultant films. Scroll down to see some clips!

“Between our vision of what classroom resources could be like and the Swords’ pioneering take on heritage texts, we have the best package of material I have ever been privileged to work on.”
Martin Phillips, ex-Chief Examiner and Project Co-ordinator

DOCTOR DRACULA is an immersive, multi-media theatre experience, which examines the symbolic role of blood in mythology, religion and literature, and how it intersects with a cutting-edge, medical understanding of blood in the 21st century.

The production presents a darkly magical vampiric world, bridging diverse time periods, and informed by the academic research of Prof. Nick Groom and Dr Luke Pilling of Exeter University.

In October and November 2019, the show completed a sold out run at the National Trust’s magnificent KNIGHTSHAYES COURT. In February 2020, DOCTOR DRACULA will run for two weeks at ASHTON COURT MANSION, in Bristol.

Dates: 18th-28th March Times: 7.30pm
(2.30pm Sat Matinée) Price: £17.50

Location: Ashton Court, Long Ashton, Bristol BS41 9JN

Praise for DOCTOR DRACULA:

An exceptional piece which fully immerses us in the pain of love, disease and living. Dr Dracula guarantees we won’t forget the importance of blood any time soon.
Katrina Bennett, Razz Magazine

Thank you so much for an absolutely brilliant performance last night — entertaining and informative!

Enjoyed this so much, it was awesome! Honestly was blown away by the last scene outside.
Audience Feedback

Another part of DOCTOR DRACULA’s remit is to raise awareness of genetic conditions such as haemochromatosis, which is caused by an overload of iron in the blood, and found in about one in 200 people in the UK. However, only about one case in 5000 is ever diagnosed. A simple prevention and cure for haemochromatosis is to give blood (which can be safely used by the NHS as a usual donation). In addition, the performances promote NHS blood donation and subscription to the Exeter 10,000 research project.
