Frankenstein is touring across the UK until November 2023. Featuring a female Doctor this new story inspired by the classic novel by Mary Shelley, written and directed by Séan Aydon.

1943. Whilst Europe tears itself apart, two women hide from their past at what feels like the very end of the world. And one of them has a terrifying story to tell…

“I created life. You don’t believe me but it’s true. I didn’t start from scratch of course but out of portions and odd ends I made something –alive. But what I created… it wasn’t a superhuman. It was a monster.”

This new thriller inspired by the classic gothic novel and complete with a stunning original score explores the very fabric of what makes us human and the ultimate cost of chasing “perfection”.

Frankenstein is an electrifying reimagining of the world’s favourite horror story that will set minds and spines tingling.

Not suitable for under 12s.

“I thought it was really interesting having the roles swapped around to have a female doctor. It gave a very different twist on the story and the relationship with the creature. Also thought they used the space very effectively particularly for a touring production..”
