    The thing I liked best about this adaptation is that Renfield is a major character. He's my favorite character in the original, and I enjoy his story arc. So I'm good he's not marginalized as "Dracula's henchman" in this. RENFIELD Life’s all I want. Life’s all right. I have all the life I need, right now, I’m laughing. (Starts to sob.) I don’t want nobody’s soul on my conscience. Doctor! Nothing in a soul to eat or – No!SEWARD. Or what? Drink? They did combine a lot of the characters and the action, but its a play so they kind of have to. I don't think it's the ultimate adaptation I'm looking for, but it's still pretty good and I'd someday love to see it performed.Notes: There are a lot of cool references to the book, the most notable for me was "King Laugh"...which is the laughter that overtakes you even when you're sad because you can see the irony in a situation and it helps you put your troubles into perspective. In the book, it's used by Van Helsing, here it's also used by Renfield (see above). My hat's off to Liz Lochhead, that was masterful, Ma'am!
