Bram Stoker himself remains relatively unknown, despite the global reach of Dracula, and despite a growing interest in the author as the centenary of his death approaches in 2012. The programme examines Stoker’s early life in Dublin, including the influence of a mysterious illness that left him unable to walk until he was seven years of age, the significance of his relationship with his formidable Sligo-born mother, and his later college years in Trinity in the mid to late 1860s when he became an outstanding athlete with a national reputation, and was one of the most recognisable characters in Dublin city. The impact of Stoker’s 25 year association with Sir Henry Irving, one of the best known Victorian actors of the late 19th century, is discussed, in particular, Stoker’s role as his right hand man and confidante in London’s Lyceum Theatre.
