The Frankenstein Project


Bringing Mary Shelley’s original and terrifying nightmare vision to theatrical life.


2017 also sees the development of our brand-new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. We will be working with groups of 9 secondary schools in three areas of the country: Wigan St Helen’s, Lincolnshire and East Kent, with students from the schools participating in writing workshops, a Gathering at which representatives come together to share and develop ideas, before a first rehearsed reading of the script in each of the three areas.

The play is planned to go into rehearsal in autumn 2017 and on tour to schools later that year.
