Slowly, painfully, out of the fusion of rabid light and impenetrable darkness, Angel emerges, alien and alienated, into the world.
Angel is the revolutionary procreation of pioneering female scientist Doctor Frankenstein – but in this take on the famous gothic tale ‘Frankie’ creates not the monster of convention, but a young woman, soon to be the subject of sociopolitical controversy and conspiracy.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is radically reimagined in a freeform modern interpretation to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication. The new play embraces the themes of the human ideal of perfection, psychosexual identity and the politics of gender and transgenderism.
Witness the civilian response to the untamed violence of Angel, the disaffected outlander, whose elemental presence is like a force of nature.
This innovative contemporary reworking of Frankenstein is a collaboration between the much talked about theatre company SISATA and Offie-nominated BAFTA award-winning playwright, John Foster.
The modern Prometheus is released from the jelly of creation…
Created with support from the Arts Council England, Shelley Theatre and the Shelley Frankenstein Festival and in partnership with the Lighthouse, Poole.
