A free modern re-imagining, Angel rising... Slowly, painfully, out of the fusion of rabid light and impenetrable darkness, Angel emerges, alien and alienated, into the world. Angel is the revolutionary procreation of pioneering female scientist Doctor Frankenstein - but in this take on the famous gothic tale ?Frankie' creates not the monster of convention, but a young woman, soon to be the subject of sociopolitical controversy and conspiracy. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is radically reimagined in a freeform modern interpretation to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the novel's publication. The new play embraces the themes of the human ideal of perfection, psychosexual identity and the politics of gender and transgenderism.
