for Mayhem’s live stage reading of Hammer Films script
Mayhem Film Festival is proud to reveal the full cast of its exclusive live stage reading of unmade Hammer Films script, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula.
Joining acclaimed author and actor Jonathan Rigby who will act as narrator, Mayhem will welcome Jonny Phillips (Titanic, Agatha Christie’s Partners in Crime) as Count Dracula himself, West End actress Sohm Kapila (Bend It Like Beckham: The Musical), TV Workshoppers, Harpal Hayer and Sabrina Sandhu, and local actors Lauren Carse (Truckers), Shajait Khan, and Jas Steven Singh.
The completely unique event will take place at Broadway as part of Mayhem’s 2015 edition, with the group of actors bringing to life a never-seen-before Hammer Dracula story, and accompanied by original music by Neil Tolliday.
Lying firmly in the tradition of the classic Hammer Dracula films, and written by legendary Hammer writer/producer Anthony Hinds, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula, sees Count Dracula escape to India where his evil influence is just as insidious and powerful.
Earlier this month, Mayhem announced its full line-up of events and guests, including Aaaaaaaah! with Q&A from director Steve Oram, documentary Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD with director Paul Goodwin, producer Sean Hogan and 2000AD writer and artist D’Israeli, Howl with Q&A from director Paul Hyett, the haunting Nina Forever with co-directors Chris & Ben Blaine and producer Cassandra Sisgaard, and the provocative German Angst with co-director Michal Kowakowski.
