Frankenstein

Touring the UK from September 2016

 

by Mary Shelley

Adapted for the stage by John Ginman

 

“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”

Geneva. 1816. Victor Frankenstein obsesses in the pursuit of nature’s secret, the elixir of life itself. But nothing can prepare him for what he creates. So begins a gripping life or death adventure taking him to the ends of the earth and beyond.

A brand new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Gothic horror masterpiece fusing ensemble storytelling, live music, puppetry and stunning theatricality. From the artistic team behind Blackeyed Theatre’s hugely successful 2013 production of Dracula, Frankenstein promises a fresh, exciting take on what is widely considered to be a landmark work of romantic, gothic and science fiction literature.

Running time: 2 hours (including interval)

Suitable for Age 11+
