‘The Kisses’ was Scary Little Girls’ very first fringe theatre production, performed at The Courtyard, King’s Cross in 2003. Below is a selection of promotional material and reviews of the show.
Many hours of historic research have taken Rebecca Mordan deep into Stoker’s mind. Her adaption not only delivers the author’s intention more faithfully than previous work but takes its allegory further than he could ever have imagined.
Excellent touches…excellently judged.
Rebecca Mordan’s rigorous re-examination of Dracula…lifts this piece above the norm…Mordan’s exciting new adaptation could easily become a stable for theatre companies and schools.
This courageous new adaptation of Bram Stokers’ gothic classic features a female Count…there has always been something sexual about blood sucking but Scary Little Girls move things a step further by bringing us female masturbation and orgasm with each bite…members of the audience will find themselves tipped out into Kings Cross which seems the perfect setting for the sexual depravity, drug use and general insanity of this production.
The Camden New Journal
Rebecca Mordan is no ordinary playwright. Taking artistic vision to a new extreme…Scary Little Girls present Stoker’s masterpiece as a study in female desire. Cue a fresh look at the consequences of the female orgasm… Scary Little Girls claim to strive towards conveying the “true richness” of classic texts. It’s a noble ambition from a writer with a distinctive voice of her own.
