Victor Frankenstein awakens on the Archangel—captained by Robert Walton of London. The ship is frozen in place near the Arctic Circle, and Walton's men are on the verge of mutiny. Walton, though, dreams of being the first to reach the North Pole. Frankenstein, delirious from fatigue and hunger, cautions Walton against arrogance. Frankenstein knows the dark consequences of unchecked pride better than anyone. Years before, young and optimistic Victor decides to embark from Geneva to University at Ingolstadt. His studies consume him, leading him to experiments that could benefit all humankind—or perhaps destroy it altogether. He builds a man composed of the reassembled dead, but the result is hideous and an abominable mockery of Victor's higher intentions. Victor tries to dispose of his creation, but it escapes into the dark night. Frankenstein's creature wanders through Germany, beaten and scorned, until a kindly blind man, De Lacey, takes him in and teaches him to speak and to read. The creature's happiness is short-lived. He is driven from his newfound home by frightened villagers and vows revenge on the creator who brought him to life. The creature finds Victor, happy again in Geneva, and develops a plan that will bring him a companion as horrifying as he, exacting terrible punishment against the man who made him a monster.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Many technical aspects. Be prepared to address these especially in the "reanimation". We did it "low tech" with sophisticated sound design and lighting design and it went quite well. The audience does want to see some spectacle here as they have grown to expect it with this story, but a little creativity goes a long way."
Tip by Greg Foro, San Joaquin Delta College, Stockton, Calif.

Media Reviews

"A wildly atmospheric, emotionally haunting production." -Lexington Herald-Leader

"A graphic retelling of the Frankenstein story filled with empathetic characters and a true monster who quotes Milton and the Bible." -ChicagoCritic.com
