Synopsis


Burn Bright Theatre return to the Space this Spring with a visceral, feminist new version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.


A brilliant scientist.


An extraordinary imagination.


A boundary that shouldn't be crossed.


In the darkness of night, Elizabeth Frankenstein manages the unthinkable - creating sentient life.


As the resulting monster is shunned by her maker, she is cast out into the violent and unfeeling world beyond.


But a terrible chain of murder and horror is unleashed, both creation and creator must come face to face in a final, terrible showdown.


Featuring the trademark brand of ensemble theatre and live music, ideas of gender and power are brought to life in a new retelling of history's greatest horror story.
