WORLD PREMIERE 2020
The new theatrical adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, from the creators of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (“Magical!... Jaw dropping!" - the New York Times ) and Jungle Book ("A Must See" - Broadway World). Co-created by Rick Miller, Craig Francis and Paul Van Dyck, Frankenstein is the third of the "connection" trilogy of family stage productions that look at classic stories through a modern lens, using immersive video, sound and lighting, and playful combinations of hig-tech and low-tech theatre. Frankenstein will bring to life the 19th-century story through the eyes of a modern graphic novelist, Mary, who discovers the journal of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. She draws us into the tale of the creator and his "monster", and confronts modern issues of climate change, artificial intelligence, our relationship to technology, and how we need to face our own fears... before they face us!
Frankenstein is produced by Kidoons and WYRD Productions, in association with The 20K Collective.
