Book Synopsis
Victor Frankenstein leaves home to pursue the study of natural philosophy. After years of study, he creates a creature from lifeless tissue and gives it the essence of life. As the creature achieves consciousness, Victor is horrified and abandons his monstrosity. Left to its own devices, the creature learns about mankind and then proceeds to extract a horrible revenge upon its creator. Playwright David Calkins stays true to Mary Shelley's novel in this stage adaptation. He maintains Shelley's key themes of scientific, social, and personal responsibilities as well as questions of what constitutes the soul. The encounters between creator and creation are as gripping and timeless as they have been for 200 years.
(Cast of 11 men, 3 women, 1 child.)
