It has remained a firm favourite with mainstream theatre audiences through the years and is often used as a set piece for English Literature at GCSE level.

Set in Geneva in 1816, ‘Frankenstein’ centres around Victor Frankenstein who 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.

Bracknell News:

Blackeyed Theatre originally produced this adaption in 2016 where it toured across the UK and received fantastic reviews from publications such as ‘The Stage’ and ‘The Express’

The original production was described as being ‘masterfully constructed’ and ‘genuinely moving.’
