A spark of life, a flash… and something new is created. A scientist brings life from death, a young woman invents a new genre of literature and both will be known by the same name: Frankenstein.
This Hallowe’en, Tea Break Theatre unravel their version of Mary Shelley’s twisting tale of the inner darkness of man and the perils of stretching the bounds of nature. An electric adaptation of the novel in its 200th year, this immersive experience will transport you away from everything safe and familiar into a world of uncertainty, experimentation and danger.

Inventive adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel that would benefit from greater directorial surety
