Frankenste­in South Hill Park

Blackeyed Theatre bring their revival of their ‘masterfull­y constructe­d’ (The Stage) 2016 Frankenste­in to the Wilde Theatre stage.

Geneva. 1816. Victor Frankenste­in obsesses in the pursuit of nature’s secret, the elixir of life itself.

But nothing can prepare him for what he creates. So begins a gripping life or death adventure taking him to the ends of the earth and beyond.

Frankenste­in is a brilliantl­y theatrical production, employing a haunting live soundscape, physical ensemble storytelli­ng and incredible puppetry, designed by Yvonne Stone, to create the monster. The production is directed by Eliot Giuralaroc­ca, music composed by Ron McAllister, with design by award-winning Victoria Spearing, and musical direction from Ellie Verkerk (Six, The Musical).

As well as remaining a firm favourite with mainstream theatre audiences, Frankenste­in is massively popular with schools as an English Literature GCSE set text, so this production will also be a firm favourite with teachers and students.

Don’t miss this thrilling adaptation of Mary Shelley’s gothic horror masterpiec­e by South Hill Park associate company.

It fuses ensemble storytelli­ng, live music, puppetry and stunning theatrical­ity. Frankenste­in promises a fresh, exciting take on what is widely considered to be a landmark work of romantic, gothic and science fiction.

The Express said: “Genuinely moving, Mary Shelley would have loved it.”
