Frankenstein

T1637038064
Rescued near the North Pole, a dying Victor Frankenstein tells a British explorer Captain Robert Walton, an incredible tale of his cursed life. The eldest son of a wealthy Swiss family, Frankenstein is sent to University in Ingolstadt, where his brilliance and thirst for knowledge are soon clear to all. He develops an obsessive quest to create life and bestow it on an inanimate being, which he has constructed from the corpses of many experiments; something which horrifies even himself. When he succeeds in animating his creature, he is appalled by what he's done and hides from him; the creature disappears, only gradually does it become apparent that in creating this being, then rejecting him, Frankenstein has brought about the doom of all those who are dear to him.
Book by Mary Shelley

Production details

Geneva, Switzerland, 1823. Deeply affected by his mother's untimely passing and the death of Greg, his pet hamster, undergraduate Victor Frankenstein, comes up with a plan. Using all of his best science-y skills, he endeavours to conquer death, once and for all - by creating life itself! But will his creation be to his liking? Or has Victor unwittingly made a huge mistake? With a four-piece band pumping out original music, preposterous puppets, grotesque gags and diabolically desperate dance-moves, this rib-tickingly raucous monster of a show will leave you in stitches. Don't say we didn't warn you...
