Mary Shelley’s revolutionary horror classic is shocked to life in Nick Dear’s adaptation. Retold from the abandoned Creature’s point of view, this taut, muscular version raises urgent questions about scientific responsibility, parental neglect, and the nature of good and evil.
In a daring double casting, Nick Sandys and Greg Matthew Anderson alternate the roles of the Creator and Creature. For a detailed schedule on when Nick is playing the Creature and when Greg is playing the Creature, please visit RemyBumppo.org/Shows/Frankenstein/
Post-show discussions will be held throughout the run, on select dates. Check schedule for details.
