"Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful"

Geneva. 1816. Victor Frankenstein obsesses in the pursuit of nature’s secret, the elixir of life itself. But nothing can prepare him for what he creates.

So begins a gripping life or death adventure taking him to the ends of the earth and beyond.

Don't miss this thrilling adaptation of Mary Shelley's Gothic horror masterpiece, fusing ensemble storytelling, live music, puppetry and stunning theatricality.

A revival of Blackeyed Theatre's "masterfully constructed" (The Stage) 2016 production, Frankenstein promises a fresh, exciting take on what is widely considered to be a landmark work of romantic, gothic and science fiction literature.
