The iconic, creeping terror of a horror film classic from the days of silent cinema is to take to the stage at Blackfriars next weekend.

Nosferatu tells the dark and mysterious tale of the sailors in Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, as they journey from Varna to Whitby with an unknown cargo.

The production is brought to the stage by Proper Job Theatre Company who give the following intro to tempt those who dare to the show: “It’s one hour before dawn. On the blood dark sea the ship is barely moving. There’s a sail as torn as a shattered shirt. Something is aboard the ship.”

With a mixture or breathtaking illusions and trickery, an original musical score and a libretto from the acclaimed poet Ian McMillan this production promises to live long in the memory.

The show plays at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, in Spain Lane, Boston, on Saturday, from 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 adults (conc £10).
