Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature is determined to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal…
Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling, gory, deeply disturbing classic tale.
Nick Dear’s adaptation of Frankenstein, based on the novel by Mary Shelley, premiered at the National Theatre, London, in February 2011 starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Warning – this play contains scenes of a graphic sexual and violent nature. Not for the faint hearted.
