Gothic Hallowe’en Outing

The Department of English Studies at Stirling has a thriving postgraduate community.  On Sunday 31 October, the students on the Mlitt in Gothic Imagination and the MLitt in Modern Scottish Writing  joined evil forces to attend a performance of Liz Lochead’s dramatic adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  The play was performed by the award-winning Sell A Door Theatre Company.  Although the complex form of Stoker’s novel makes it difficult to conceptualise as a performed piece, I found Lochead’s adaptation (and slight modification) compelling theatre.   Here are a number of pictures from the meal we all enjoyed together before the event — although, unlike the fantastically efficient technologies of Stoker’s novel, my camera decided to give up the ghost after the first 5 minutes.
