WORLD PREMIERE - Theatre comes to FrightFest! James Swanton's acclaimed play is a Shakespearean retelling of Mary Shelley's masterpiece from the monster’s perspective, and former FrightFest 'Best Scare' Award winner Sam Ashurst has combined theatre and cinema to bring it to FrightFesters. Shot on the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication, featuring visuals director Simon Rumley (FASHIONISTA) called “Hypnotic”, a performance critic Anton Bitel (Sight & Sound) called “a tour de force” and a soundtrack by Johnny Jewel (Twin Peaks: The Return). Imagine if David Lynch made plays instead of films, that's FRANKENSTEIN’S CREATURE. You've never seen anything like it.
