Background


In a season of Hackney Horror, Classic Spring presents the two greatest myths of the Gothic imagination, Frankenstein and Dracula Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, in their original theatrical versions.


Following their celebrated Oscar Wilde season in London's West End last year, Classic Spring bring two of the world's most terrifying tales to London's most beautiful and atmospheric theatre, Hackney Empire.


Synopsis


Using all the entertainment fireworks of Regency and Victorian theatre - music, comedy, drama, tableaux, song and captivating story-telling - the earliest Fright Night Frisson will be brought back to vivid theatrical life.


From 1823, a world of romance and revolution, came the first adaptation of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley's thrilling tale of technology gone beyond human control.


With a single company telling epic stories in London's most Gothic auditorium, there is the chance, for those brave enough, of seeing both on Saturdays and Sundays!
