This daring adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic re-imagines Victor Frankenstein as a gene-splicing molecular biologist who creates human life from his own DNA with catastrophic results.

Speaking from a holding cell, Frankenstein is desperate to set the record straight.

A modern ghost story and psychological thriller, this version of Frankenstein aims to chill us with the darkness we hold within our DNA — and our hearts.

Comments from work in development 2017

“Really wonderful detailed exploration of Frankenstein by our National Treasures, Theatre Lovett. You are on to something special!” Graham McLaren, Director, The Abbey Theatre

“The intensity of the silence in that audience is something I won't forget - not one person between me and the stage moved a muscle during the piece. Superb theatre.”
