by Christine Davey, based on the novel by Mary Shelley



A startling, unsettling and hugely theatrical adaptation of Mary Shelley’s timeless classic, produced by award-winning playwright Christine Davey, Skin of our Teeth Productions and La Mama Theatre.
A funny, thoughtful, horrific and remarkable story of love, power, friendship, betrayal and every emotion in between.
Frankenstein is a larger-than-life (and death) production celebrating and unleashing the monster in all of us. A visceral piece of theatre that grabs at your heart and soul and never lets go.
The future is female and here she comes, ready or not.
