About this submission
Bram Stoker created his most famous novel, Dracula, while employed as Business Manger by London’s most beloved theatrical duo - Henry Irving and Ellen Terry. It is said that Irving was the model for the Count and Terry the inspiration for the novel’s heroine, Mina. Stage Struck follows Stoker ‘s life while interweaving the story of a very different troupe of players, one hundred years later in New York, as they mount a production of Dracula. The two worlds collide in theatrical ways and reveal that a life in the theatre is both fraught and joyous in any century.
