Candlelit Frankenstein

“One to make you dread to look round, to curdle the blood and quicken the beatings of the heart.”

Late at night Mary Shelley spins her famous ghost story at the Villa Diodati in Switzerland with her husband Percy, Lord Byron and Dr John Polidori, the father of the Vampyre legend.

The master poets are terrified by the tale which goes on to be known as the first and greatest work of science fiction ever written.

Faithful to the text and themes of the novel, Frankenstein is brought to life by this talented and enthralling company, igniting the imagination with poetry, soundscapes, shadows and movement.
