By special arrangement with Lighthouse Plays, this production is based on the novel by Mary Shelly and adapted by Andrew Biliter. When a team of arctic voyagers rescue a ragged, half-starved man wandering the ice floes, they bear witness to a horrific tale of human prejudice and science gone awry. Enter the life of Victor Frankenstein, a promising young scientist whose reckless experiments set in motion a terrible series of events—for Victor, his family, and his hideous, unloved creation. Forget the campy Hollywood version: this uncommonly faithful adaptation resurrects the fragile innocence and lurking terror of Mary Shelley’s original novel, preserving much of her prose as well. If you would be willing to bring finger foods to share, it would be greatly appreciated! Download the flyer.
