Frankenstein’s Creature

Tue 25th – Sat 29th August 2015 | Theatre503, London

He came into the world, fully formed. He never felt the warmth of a friend or the touch of a lover. Even his father fled from him in terror.

But Frankenstein’s Creature feels the sun on his face, the cold in his bones, and a hatred stirring. With no name and no past, he must forge a place in a world that does not want him. He must find his voice.

Frankenstein’s Creature is a thrilling new play from award-winning writer-performer James Swanton. Radically reframing Mary Shelley’s classic tale from the perspective of the Creature himself, it shines a light on the makings of a monster and the darkness within us all.

Fresh from the West End run of Sikes & Nancy, James Swanton premieres his latest work at Theatre503. For one week only, see him in a gripping new production from Dippermouth.
