Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant and ambitious young student, discovers the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead. But elation at his triumph turns to horror when he realises the full extent of his monstrous creation. Abandoned by the one who made him, Frankenstein’s Creature is left alone in a world that fears and rejects him, and soon his innocence turns to misery. Increasingly desperate and vengeful, he determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying bargain.
Arrows & Traps Frankenstein is written and directed by artistic director Ross McGregor, and stars Cornelia Baumann as Mary Shelley, Christopher Tester as Victor Frankenstein and Will Pinchin as The Creature.
