FRANKENSTEIN REVIVED

FRANKENSTEIN REVIVED

By Morris Panych

Based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Music by David Coulter

Directed by Morris Panych

A TALE OF TERROR BEYOND WORDS

In writing perhaps the most celebrated horror story in English literature, eighteen-year-old Mary Shelley raised profound questions about life, death and the perils of scientific hubris. Now Shelley’s creation takes on new life as an intimate, intense and passion-filled synthesis of theatre and dance that explores the big question at the story’s heart: What does it mean to be human?
