A handful of survivors from Bram Stoker's original tale have been locked up in Dr. John Seward's insane asylum, their minds having proved too fragile to withstand Dracula's terror. Dr. Seward has developed a fascinating new therapy to restore his tortured patients to sanity. They are using puppets to relive the events of the novel and to reach an understanding of what REALLY happened when they fell under Dracula's evil spell. On the verge of a monumental breakthrough, Dr. Seward is inviting a knowledgeable audience to witness the proceedings. Monkey Wrench Puppet Lab dares you to observe these controversial techniques as we probe the damaged minds of the victims of the Dark Prince.

This mesmerizing new puppet spectacle is brought to you by the talented puppeteers of Monkey Wrench Puppet Lab, the creators of Frankenocchio, Jello-A-Go Go, Halfpenny Opera and Drunk Puppet Nite. In Dracula: A Case Study, Seattle's favorite puppeteers use a compelling assortment of puppet styles, projections, acting and music to recreate the inner workings of a Victorian-era insane asylum. The show is written and directed by Brian Kooser, the mastermind behind Frankenocchio. In addition to the puppet talents of Monkey Wrench, Dracula presents the original music of Ensemble Sub Masa to create a puppet tale unlike anything you've even seen.
