Summary:
It’s the turn of the 19th century, and Captain Robert Walton mounts a daring quest for the North Pole. From the ice of the Arctic Ocean, he rescues a lone and mysterious stranger: Victoria Frankenstein, who repays him with a tale of battling nature and chasing glory that rivals and surpasses his own. We follow her through her horrifying success in bringing a monstrous Creature to life, and the death and destruction left in their path. Creature or Creator: Which one is the Monster?

This world premiere adaptation of Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley bottles the angst, obsession, terror, and suspense of the gothic novel that laid the foundation for the genres of modern horror and science fiction that came after it.


Safety precautions

This season will be based on shows (mostly dramas and comedies) with very small casts, and fewer than usual performances, played to physically-distanced audiences. At the same time, these same shows will be available to much larger audiences than usual when presented as live-streaming events online.

We have hand sanitizer stations.  We are only allowing 28 people in the audience which normally seats 108.  Audience member masks are required.
