To mark 200 years since the first publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, we present Nick Dear’s powerful stage version of the novel, celebrating in dramatic detail the era Frankenstein was first brought to life.
A creature awakes into a bewildering world of sound and light. Childlike in his innocence, but grotesque in form, he is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck creator and left to understand and survive the world alone.
His initial delight at the natural world is soon outweighed by the cruelty he receives at the hands of human society. Increasingly desperate and vengeful at his fate, he determines to track down the one person who owes him reparation, to strike a terrifying deal.
by Nick Dear, from the novel by Mary Shelley
