The production marks 200 years from the summer of 1816, when Shelley conceived the idea for her Gothic novel, in which a young scientist constructs and animates a living Creature – with catastrophic results.
Kelly’s adaptation, described in its preface as “[p]erhaps the truest adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic yet,” presents Shelley’s horror story in two swift acts, ending in “a horrific climax of dramatic suspense.”
FTT welcomes Chuck Gessert as guest director. The production features an all-student cast, as well as costumes by Richard E. Donnelly, scenic design by Marcus Stephens, and lighting design by Sarah Prince.
Frankenstein is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
