A silent play without the silence
Montague Basement's Nosferatu: A Fractured Symphony is a masterful new work which uses fragments from F.W.Murnau's 1922 film of the same name.

The storyline is best told from the beginning: he is the 1%. A spoilt aristocrat buying investment properties from overseas. He is a boat person, invading our shores, bringing disease and death across the water. He is a sexual predator. A perverted sadist corrupting the wives and daughters of everyone he meets. Count Orlock. The Vampire. Mr. De Ville. Dracula. Nosferatu.

He is everyone's favourite.

This production dares to imagine a world without Dracula and rebuilds the myth before our eyes, creating one of the most purely visual forms of storytelling.

It was gruesome, absurd and filled with darkness, entering the dark subconscious of our culture and loaded with great acting. It certainly ticked all the boxes for the horror genre.

This production did not shy away from the horror aesthetic and was packed with darkness and violence. The cast Jeremi Campese, Lulu Howes, Annie Stafford and Lucy Burke who all did a marvellous job and executed the production to perfection!
