Le Navet Bete, the Exeter-based physical comedy theatre company, will be performing its adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula at The Beehive in Honiton.

The company’s run at the Exeter Northcott received multiple five-star reviews and critical acclaim from both press and audiences.

If you missed it at the Northcott now’s your chance, with the production taking place on Saturday, June 3, at 7pm.

Dracula: the Bloody Truth, will take audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby, whilst the frantic Van Helsing and his three amateur actors try to stage a life-changing, factual theatrical production of the events of Dracula.

Formed in 2007, the award-winning Le Navet Bete are artists in residence at the Exeter Phoenix and last year became associate artists at the Exeter Northcott Theatre.

This will be the third show they have brought to The Beehive Honiton, last year delighting audiences with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and in 2015 the hilarious Dick Tracy.

Directed by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy directors, John Nicholson (Peepolykus) and designed by Phil Eddolls (Mark Bruce Company, Improbable Theatre) Dracula: The Bloody Truth promises to have the vampires back in the ground and leave audiences flying high. Suitable for age 7+

Tickets are £10 with students/under 16s £8 - call the box office on 01404 384050 or visit
