New Musical

After inspiring the heebie-jeebies in millions of readers across the globe for nigh on two hundred years, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is dissected by Eric B. Sirota and adapted into this new musical that asks what life is without love. Billed as a 'sweeping Gothic romance' Frankenstein will explore the world of the hubristic Victor Frankenstein and how his own wish to be loved is not ignored in the creature he gives life to.

Exploring the power of love, loss, grief and scientific responsibility through a soaring score, it looks as if this Sirota's adaptation will be one to watch this coming season.

According to literature lore, the fantastical horror of Shelley's novel was born from a famous storm in Lake Geneva, Switzerland. In 1812, whilst staying at Lord Byron's Villa with her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Polidari, the group were caught up in the strange weather of an unseasonably cold and rainy June in the region. Sequestered in the house for three days, they made up chilling tales to amuse one another. By the time the storm passed, the foundations of two of horror's greatest creations were laid, Mary's Frankenstein and John Polidari's The Vampyre, the first modern Vampire story.
