Henry Irving is dead. Queen Victoria knighted him. Oscar Wilde applauded him. Shakespeare lived through him. And some whisper that Bram Stoker immortalised him – by writing the horror classic Dracula. But Henry Irving is dead now. And Dracula is very much alive. A state of affairs that Irving will not accept. Join Irving’s restless spirit as he tells the story of how he transformed himself from a stuttering, spindly country boy into the most formidable actor of the nineteenth century. It is a story of a man who petrified London with his Gothic portrayals of mad monarchs, guilt-stricken murderers and the devil himself. A story of a man who could never escape his monsters – even in death.
