Murder, Mayhem and the Macabre are the main ingredients of this easy-to-stage new version. Unlike other versions of the famous thriller, this one catches the essence of Mary Shelley's classic and builds to a climax with an unexpected twist. On the surface, the ill-fated creature is to blame for the chain of grisly deaths, while Victor Frankenstein and Henry Clerval are old, dear friends. But underneath...ah, that's where the mystery lies. Victor Frankenstein is a man so deeply entangled with his scientific discoveries that he is blind to the manipulations of his best friend. Henry Clerval is a madman!
