Frankenstein by Nick Dear

Frankenstein by Nick Dear

Directed by Chris Hill

ALRA’s licence to present Nick Dear’s version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is granted by Rosica Colin Limited.

At first I knew nothing at all. But I studied the ways of men, and slowly I learnt: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase, how to humiliate.

Frankenstein by Nick Dear

About the play

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
