A brilliant scientist. An extraordinary imagination. A boundary that shouldn't be crossed.
Burn Bright Theatre’s critically acclaimed, female-led new retelling of Mary Shelley’s landmark novel returns this Halloween.
Elizabeth Frankenstein is a woman ahead of her time. But when tragedy strikes, a dangerous obsession takes hold. In the darkness of night, Frankenstein manages the unthinkable – creating sentient life.
As the resulting monster is shunned by her maker, she is cast out into the violent and unfeeling world beyond. But a terrible chain of murder and horror is unleashed, both creation and creator must come face to face in a final, terrible showdown.
Featuring a trademark brand of ensemble theatre, puppetry and live music, ideas of gender and power are brought to life in a visceral new retelling – celebrating the 200th anniversary of history’s greatest horror story.
