Shadowplay

Joseph O'Connor

A gorgeous new novel from the bestselling author of Star of the Sea about Bram Stoker’s time working in a London theatre and the inspirations that led to the creation of Dracula.

Shadowplay is a masterful account of Bram Stoker’s life as a young man in London working with Henry Irving, the world’s first superstar actor. A domineering personality of volcanic charisma and mesmerizing talent, Irving hires an unremarkable Dublin clerk to help him with his daring project: to open his own London theatre, and make it the greatest playhouse in the world.

Through Bram Stoker’s extraordinary experiences at the Lyceum, his tempestuous relationship with Irving and the bittersweet closeness he finds with the dazzling actress Ellen Terry, Stoker will be inspired to pen Dracula, the most iconic supernatural tale of all time. Shadowplay is a captivating novel about desire, celebrity, the creation of art, ambition and love.
