FRANKENSTEIN, or The Modern Prometheus is a new dramatisation of Mary Shelley's intense and compelling tale, which still pushes the boundaries today as it did two hundred years ago.

Designed for the theatre and written specially for The Wightman Theatre, this new work respects Mary Shelley's piercing vision and powerful rhetoric.

Drawing upon the Romantic period's science and poetry, and the Shelleys' intense interests in both, this new adaptation places great emphasis on the life of the creator - the need for love, and the tragedy of over-reaching.
