Patrick Sandford's acclaimed dramatisation of Mary Shelley's celebrated novel FRANKENSTEIN, a classic work of gothic fiction in the English canon.
Patrick Sandford's startling and highly evocative dramatisiation of Mary Shelley's much-loved Victorian gothic novel FRANKENSTEIN. In the depths of the frozen Arctic, a sea captain rescues a young man who reveals he is pursuing someone across the ice. This man is Victor Frankenstein, an ambitious young student who has discovered the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead. From this startling beginning a nightmare tale of horror and madness unfolds. Reimagined for the stage, Shelley's original novel is brilliantly brought to life in a new adaptation by Patrick Sandford, Artistic Director of Southampton's Nuffield Theatre and adapter of other major literary works for the stage including The Wind in the Willows and A Christmas Carol.
