What fiendish fashion will the cast of Bride of Wankenstein be wearing when they take to the Hen & Chickens Theatre stage from 9 to 13 October 2018? We can only guess from these behind-the-scenes images of their costume fitting. To see the costumes these evil geniuses have created, you’ll have to book tickets.
Inspired by Mary Shelley‘s Gothic novel, Oliver Myers‘ new play tells the story of 30-year-old virgin William Wankenstein.
He feels rejected by society and especially by women. But in his basement flat, he has found a cure for his involuntary condition. William, a scientific genius, has designed and constructed his very own bespoke, perfect woman: Pandora. All William must do is bring her to life and teach her to love him. What could possibly go wrong?
Rocket Surgery UK, who are producing the monstrously funny satire about toxic masculinity on the internet and wish fulfilment fantasies, have also teamed up with Deptford Cinema to offer a lucky Bride of Wankenstein audience member the chance to win a pair of tickets to see a special screen of 1989 shlock-horror classic Bride of Re-Animator. The film is showing on 30 November as part of the cinema’s Frankenstein Forever season.
The special season of films, screened in the year that marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s original Frankenstein, also features The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Frankenstein Unbound and Frankenstein Conquers The World.
To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is buy tickets to Bride of Wankenstein, follow @RocketSurgeryUK on social media and tag them in a post about the play. The competition ends on Monday 15 October 2018 and the winner will be announced by Rocket Surgery on Friday 19 October.
Brighten up your gloomy autumn evening with a spooky satirical comedy.
