The cast will take its audience to Transylvlania (modern-day Romania), where Jonathan Harker, a young London solicitor (lawyer) travels to help a rich nobleman, Count Dracula, purchase an estate in England. Dracula is planning to immigrate to England, and wants Harker to help him hammer out all the legal details.  What Harker soon realizes is that the Count may not be exactly as ordinary as he may seem . . . in fact . . . he may be a vampire!
