CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
You 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.Performers Polly Frame (, Ed Gaughan (The Creature), Scott Turnbull (Henry Clerval), Victoria Elliott (Elizabeth Frankenstein), Donald McBride (Victoria's father), Libby Davison (Mary), Rachel Denning (Justine Moritz).
