ABOUT THE PLAY
6 YEARS AND UP
An enchanted castle, bloodthirsty vampires, open tombs and an immortal love story are just some of the elements in this hilarious version of Bram Stoker’s classic. With a large dosis of comedy the actors explore the magically fun world of terror.
Count Dracula, a retired rock and roll star, lives a solitary life in his castle in Pennsylvania with only the eccentric drummer Rumsfeld as company. They both miss the rock and roll lifestyle and the adoration of their fans. The Count especially misses his wife and singer Elisabetta, killed by the famous vampire slayer Eddie Van Helsing. The situation changes however when two young singers full of talent and energy approach the castle on their way to Broadway looking for fame and fortune.
Influenced on one hand by the visual humour of Mr Bean, Monty Python and Buster Keaton and on the other by the gestual theatre of Peter Brook and Theatre de la Complicité, Face 2 Face believes that in this show there is something for everyone, children and adults, Spanish speakers and natives, anyone who wants to spend an hour amongst laughter, frights and the true spirit of Halloween.
Seen by 50,000 spectators during the last ten years and acclaimed by the public, this Face 2 Face classic returns to the stage amid screams of horror and laughter.

– Opinions –
Everything went beautifully: laughter, entertainment and a actorazos. We went with a girl of 8 years with knowledge of English and although they did not understand every word, if they understood what the story was and was able to participate. Again, very good, enjoyable and recommended
Irreproachable work. A classic that never loses force, with the added attraction that is in English and that children (and adults) are not mere recipients, but a little endeavor (if not English speakers). The actors are great.
Drockula is a hilarious play for both children and adults. The theme is very well treated, not of terror but of laughter. The kids had a great time. The staging is great and there is live music. The very affordable and understandable English. Volvere to see Face 2 Face in other representations.
