Profs & Pints presents: "Queering 'Dracula'"
In adapting Bram Stokers novel Dracula for the stage, the playwright William McNulty refused to see anything romantic or sympathetic in the main character, a powerful male figure who brutally attacks young women. In staging McNultys play at American University, Menninger and Morton took the playwrights reexamination of sex and power a step further, reversing the genders of Dracula and other characters.

Theyll describe how their effort, informed by feminist and queer-theory scholarship, challenged their audiences assumptions and drove stakes into the hearts of stereotypes. Theyll also talk about the puppetry and costuming that they used to bring Stokers frightening tale back to life.

Their talk will make you rethink your views of the horror genre and your beliefs about what lurks in the dark. (Vampiric attire encouraged, but be sure to get home before dawn.)
