As the city is torn apart by Prussian cannon fire a lone figure staggers through the ruins of the once proud University. Screaming at the top of his lungs, he collapses at the feet of an ambitious physician and a skittish nurse. His name is Victor Frankenstein.
While the world outside burns and the University collapses around them, Dr. Frankenstein tells his two new companions the most incredible story they've ever heard. Did he truly defy God and create life? Or is Frankenstein hiding an even more deadly secret? The stage is set. The Doctor begins. And the only thing more chilling than his story is what might come after it…
Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece comes to life in an inspirational new production. Your journey into the darkest recesses of the human mind begins inside a Grade II listed, Victorian Medical Society. Master playwright Nick Lane's psychological thriller has all the tension, suspicion and atmosphere of the best british mysteries. It will leave you on the edge on your seat.
But remember what you witness must be kept secret!
