Frankenstein

Inspired by Mary Shelley’s novel

 

Remember, that I am thy creature; l ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel…

A storm gathers outside. In an ordinary home, the lights flicker, a radio crackles, and an extraordinary tale begins.

As a couple confront their own fears about impending parenthood, the story of Frankenstein erupts into life around them, as everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, a house on fire…

imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse’s multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic is a psychological thriller which dares to ask the question – what is it to be human?

 

There will be a post-show discussion following the performance on 30 April.

 

If a performance is sold out, email info@northernstage.co.uk or call 0191 230 5151 to be added to our waiting list.
