What is it?
‘If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!’
One of the greatest gothic tales will come to life in the eerily atmospheric Wilton’s Music Hall, with a production of Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein, from Tuesday 7th to Saturday 18th March.
The original story was written when Shelley was just 18 years old, and tells the tale of Frankenstein, a young scientist who brings a gruesome body to life. Cast out into a hostile world, Frankenstein’s creature searches for his true identity and, on realising how he came to be, learns the pain of rejection and broken promises.
Vengeful, dangerous and in bloodthirsty pursuit of his maker, the creature threatens to destroy Frankenstein and the lives of everyone he loves. This brand new version of Shelley’s immortal tale is directed by Eleanor Rhode and reimagined by Tristan Bernays (writer and director of Teddy, winner of Best New Musical at the 2016 Off West End Awards).
Frankenstein transfers from the renowned Watermill Theatre, where it enjoyed a successful short run in 2016. George Fletcher and Rowena Lennon perform this take on a powerful and dark masterpiece that explores the timeless relationship between parent and child, isolation, prejudice and revenge and speaks to our modern society.
