Alive on stage

Frankenstein, an extraordinary tale of creation and humanity, retold in a large-scale theatrical event.

Victor Frankenstein, a grieving but brilliantly ambitious young scientist, pushes the boundaries of theory and morality to create a living being from the remains of the dead. But playing God has its consequences…

Shunned by society and plagued by an inherited sense of confusion and rage, Victor’s miracle of science becomes a monster that threatens to destroy everything his creator holds dear.

Combining cutting edge production elements with the power of virtuosic storytelling, Frankenstein is a night of thrilling theatre of monstrous proportions - bringing Mary Shelley’s classic screaming into the 21st century.

Playing strictly limited seasons in Melbourne and Sydney.
