Dr Frankenstein archiveYou are forever responsible for what you create. Victoria Frankenstein is a brilliant, visionary young woman born into a world not ready for her. The industrial revolution is dawning and the British Empire circles the globe. It's an age of enlightenment, a time where old orders begin to crumble and everything seems possible. Provided, of course, that you are an English-man. Women are not allowed to study medicine in England, so Victoria travels to Ingolstadt, Bavaria to fulfil her destiny and become Dr Frankenstein. Convinced that there is no magic, no god, only undiscovered science, Victoria's experiments lead her to the very brink of human knowledge: the secret of life itself. In the dark of night, a creature is given life. There is violence, there is anger, there is fear. There will be consequences. This psychologically disturbing new version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein tells a truly great story of power and powerlessness, of fear and revenge; of the creative possibility and terrible destructive power of the human animal.
