FRANKENSTEIN; or, The Modern Prometheus
A new, one-man play faithfully adapted from Mary Shelley’s classic 1818 novel of Gothic horror.
THE STORY: London, 1799. Having returned to England after a failed sea expedition to the North Pole, Capt. Robert Walton is entreated to describe his strange encounter with Victor Frankenstein, a young science student whom he had rescued after finding him nearly frozen and traveling by a dog-drawn sled across the ice. Walton then recounts Frankenstein’s own fantastic tale of a monster he had fashioned from the parts of stolen corpses -- only to reject, then pursue his creation across Europe into the Arctic hinterlands of Russia, vowing to destroy it…or die in the trying.
A 200th anniversary must-see for Frankenstein enthusiasts and fans of mystery and horror! One actor. One hour! Suitable for adults and for children (ages 12 and over).
The Spotlight Sunday events for the 2018-2019 season are made possible by funding from the Friends of the Bloomfield Public Libraries.
