1943. Whilst Europe tears itself apart, two women hide from their past at what feels like the very end of the world. And one of them has a terrifying story to tell… 

“I created life. You don’t believe me but it’s true. I didn’t start from scratch of course but out of portions and odd ends I made something –alive. But what I created... it wasn’t a superhuman. It was a monster.”

This new thriller inspired by the classic gothic novel and complete with a stunning original score explores the very fabric of what makes us human and the ultimate cost of chasing “perfection”.  

Frankenstein is an electrifying reimagining of the world’s favourite horror story that will set minds and spines tingling.

  • A man stands wearing a brown tweed jacket, sweater vest, bow tie and blue
  • Two women stand together wearing bloodied doctors coats, one has her arms crossed and the second has a reassuring hand on her shoulder
  • Two women stand together looking at a necklace, one has a floral dress on and the second is dressed in a shirt and trousers
  • A doctor is in a laboratory, she has flipped a switch that has caused an electricity surge - she looks frightened
