Dracula, The Last Voyage of the Demeter

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Horror
South Australia • Adelaide Fringe Premiere

"Dracula: The Last Voyage of the Demeter" tells the tale of the fateful voyage that brought Dracula to England in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel.  Melbourne-based playwright Sean Carney has expanded this small part of the vampire count's story and has crafted this chilling one act show.

Following their successful mid-2022 run Sporadic Productions returns with the account of a doomed sea captain, his fracturing crew, and their undead stowaway, bringing a deep, character driven horror / drama to the Adelaide Fringe.

Presented by: Sporadic Productions

Sporadic Productions is a collection of like minded individuals who have a passion for theatre and entertaining people. The production company provides amateur actors opportunities to work in a semi-professional company. Sporadic’s first production was Doctor Who’s Midnight in the Adelaide Fringe in 2016. During 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been conducted workshops and script readings (some virtually, some in person). From these sessions, the play Dracula: The Last Voyage of the Demeter was selected for our performance for Fringe in March 2022. David Dyte has been involved with amateur/semi-professional theatre for around 15 years. Working with Newmet Intr-active Dance Theatre, Unseen Theatre Company, and Sporadic Productions.
