Frankenstein is presented through special arrangement with Rosica Colin LTD.
Directed by Tony Rust
The story of Frankenstein gets a gripping retelling in this 2011 stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old novel. Victor Frankenstein is an egotistical and troubled scientist, whose dark ambition leads him to play with life itself. He eventually succeeds in creating a being who has the innocence of a baby but is completely grotesque in form. Soon abandoned, the Creature attempts to make his way in the world, encountering cruelty and fear wherever he goes, with only fleeting moments of kindness. The Creature’s heart-rending journey dramatically illuminates themes of intellectual arrogance, prejudice, and social alienation. From its mesmerizing opening scene through its horrifying conclusion, Nick Dear’s Frankenstein offers a thought-provoking examination of the roots of good and evil.
