  5. Mark Bruce Company - Dracula - Tobacco Factory, Bristol

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 29 September 2013Performance 25 - 28 September

  7. Mark Bruce Company - Dracula - Tobacco Factory, Bristol

    Press Review Mark Kidel, theartsdesk.com, Saturday 28 September 2013Performance 25 - 28 September
