A NEW take on the vampire legend is being presented at Worcester's Swan Theatre next week.

Nosferatu the Visitor is being staged by Red Shift, which visited the venue last year with Hamlet on Prozac. Although similar to Bram Stoker's original, Red Shift's version is different because of the absence of a vampire!

In the stifling atmosphere of blitzed 1940's London, the characters are terrorised by the presence of a powerful entity which may exist or may be the product of the victims' own minds.

It is being performed next Friday and Saturday. Ring 01905 27322 for details.
