"If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!”

From the award-winning Director/Writer team behind Teddy the Musical at Southwark Playhouse comes a brand new version of this immortal tale.

Frankenstein, a young scientist, brings a gruesome body to life. Cast out into a hostile world, Frankenstein’s creature searches for his true identity. But the pain of rejection and a broken promise changes everything. Vengeful, dangerous and in blood-thirsty pursuit of his maker, the creature threatens to destroy Frankenstein and the lives of everyone he loves. In an electrifying 75 minute adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic, gothic tale, two actors explore the timeless relationship between parent and child.

Running Time
