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.
Devon based, award winning Le Navet Bete are committed to creating hilarious, physical and family friendly comedy using creative and engaging storytelling.
After bringing Dick Tracy to The Dukes three years ago we welcome them back with great anticipation.

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.

We live in a divided world, and we want to cross that divide. But how can we be popular now ‘populist’ means ‘I’m a shit’? Answer: WE LOVE EVERYONE. Oh, except bastards. Everyone hates bastards, right? We agree.
Multi-award nominated musical-activist-comedians, Jonny & The Baptists, are sick of being political and divisive.
This show is about how everything is definitely fine. Let’s just get along!
