"WHAT CAN STOP THE DETERMINED HEART AND RESOLVED WILL OF MAN?

Trapped in a mountain of ice, Captain Walton’s ambition to conquer the North Pole stalls in its tracks. Out on the frozen wastes something stirs…wretched and barely alive, Victor Frankenstein is dragged on board. 

In his fever he recounts a tale of a young scientist, a man with similar soaring ambition, a tall tale of monstrous creation. In the horror of the story the ice breaks and the ship creaks to life, but is there one last chapter in this bloody account?

Directed by Associate Artistic Director Matthew Xia (WISH LIST, INTO THE WOODS), with Shane Zaza (HAPPY VALLEY, ROAD at Royal Court) playing Victor Frankenstein, this gripping adaptation by celebrated playwright April de Angelis marks 200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s famous Gothic horror.
