A number of top-class events have been arranged by Dublin’s major institutions to celebrate Bram’s life and work in 2012.
Bram Stoker (author, athlete, civil servant, theatre ‘impresario’, theatrical critic, even newspaper editor) was born in Clontarf, Dublin in 1847 and he died in London in April, 1912. At the time of his death, he was better known as the manager of Henry Irving (the super-star of his time) and of the Lyceum Theatre in London rather than the creator of a work of fiction which is known worldwide. Where would the film industry be without Dracula? – Dracula is second only to Sherlock Holmes in the number of films (over 200) inspired by a novel. In fact where would Hallowe’en be without a Dracula costume? And all of this started here in Dublin! Yet it is Romania and Whitby which are associated with and benefitting from his work.
Watch out for a number of events taking place throughout Dublin celebrating Bram Stokers life, for example on Fri 20th in the Dublin Writers’ Museum at 1:10pm (60 minutes duration) there will be a dramatized reading in costume of excerpts from Bram Stoker’s vampire horror story, Dracula, performed by Paul O’Hanrahan.
