Stop what you’re doing and read this very carefully. Your life may depend on it…
This critically acclaimed, multi five star awarded hilarious comedy will be presented by Professor Abraham Van Helsing and his three idiotic actors as they stage a life-changing, theatrical production surrounding the true events of Dracula. Will they pull if off? It’s highly unlikely!
With four actors playing over forty characters and directed by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy directors, John Nicholson, Dracula: The Bloody Truth will make you die laughing.

LUNG in association with Leeds Playhouse
By Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead
“Why should I continue to be tolerant? When the world has been so intolerant of me.”
Amnesty International Freedom of Expression and Fringe First Award winners LUNG (E15, The 56 and Chilcot) follows the real life stories of Muslim teachers and governors who were accused of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools.
Trojan Horse was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK
Government’s inquiry, critically acclaimed theatre company LUNG investigate what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.
Making theatre with communities, by communities and for communities, LUNG is a national touring theatre company, developing innovative and politically driven work that broadens horizons and investigates modern Britain.
This play is based on real life events but some names have been changed. It is adapted from over 200 hours of interviews conducted by LUNG as well as public documents and contains words spoken by individuals who participated in public hearings, it is not endorsed or authorised by them.
“Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows on up in Edinburgh this year in LUNG’s Trojan Horse. Piercing, relevant, terrifying and beautifully told…”

Off The Telly: Jack Dee
Everyone’s favourite grumbler, Jack Dee, is returning to the stand-up stage this autumn with his first solo tour in six years. Join Jack for an evening of entertainment (food and beverages are not included) as he hits the road with his eagerly awaited brand new UK tour, Off The Telly.
“In these difficult and uncertain times, people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in” says Jack.
Jack’s most recent solo UK tour, Jack Dee Live, travelled the country for 18 months to sold-out audiences delighted to be entertained by him. This was followed by the release of his sixth stand-up DVD for Universal Pictures (UK) – Jack Dee So What? Live.
His last foray on to the live stage saw him bring a brand new type of live show to audiences in 2015 with Jack Dee’s Helpdesk. Jack and his panel of special guests helped to shed light on an array of the audience’s personal problems, dilemmas and issues with nothing pre-planned. Met with critical success, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk was commissioned by BBC Two and included series on the General Election, the US Presidential Election and the Brexit Referendum.
Most recently Jack starred in two series of ITV sitcom Bad Move, created and co-written alongside fellow Lead Balloon writer Pete Sinclair. Bad Move was a ratings success for ITV with the series averaging 4 million viewers.
