Next is the North American Premiere of DRACULA: THE BLOODY TRUTH! ; a hilarious retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula done in the style of THE 39 STEPS. The third show of our season is Ira Levine's classic thriller DEATHTRAP, which is sure to have you jumping out of your seats, followed by MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD, which brings iconic American detective Nero Wolfe to the stage for the first time. We close our season with the World Premiere of the spy-noir musical AGENTS OF INFLUENCE from Edmonton's Catalyst Theatre, (creator's of the hit show NEVERMORE). As if that wasn't enough, Vertigo will once again team up with The Shakespeare Company to bring you HAMLET: A Ghost Story, a terrifying new take on the Bard's most famous play.
