A brilliant new adaptation of the Gothic masterpiece.

From the producers who brought you Of Mice And Men and The Crucible.

An 18 year-old girl dreams up a monster. A young scientist, Frankenstein, breathes life into a gruesome body. Banished into an indifferent world, Frankenstein’s creature desperately seeks out his identity, but the agony of rejection pushes him into darkness. Dangerous and vengeful, the creature threatens to obliterate Frankenstein and everyone he loves, in a ferocious and bloodthirsty hunt for his maker.

Rona Munro’s brilliant new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Gothic masterpiece places the writer amongst the action as she wrestles with her creation and with the stark realities facing revolutionary young women, then and now.
