Frankenstein: A Gothic Creation

Sunday, 28th October, 2018 at 7:30PM

At Crook Hall & Gardens, Durham, DH1 5SZ

Frankenstein: A Gothic Creation One thought, one conception, one purpose; the unfolding of the deepest mysteries of creation. Two hundred years ago, Mary Shelley's terrifying novel of Gothic horror, Frankenstein, was first published. Its purpose: to consider the unholiest of all questions - what if man were to discover the power of God? Consumed by the ambition to discover the secret of life, Dr Victor Frankenstein succeeds in creating a living, intelligent creature in his laboratory. But when the creature stirs, he fears he has unleashed a monster upon the world. Today, with the unlocking of the secrets of DNA and the possibility of cloning and genetic engineering, it's a tale that remains as relevant, and as horrifying, as ever. To celebrate the bicentennial of the novel's publication, Timeworks Theatre presents a new adaptation of Frankenstein, which evokes both the terror of the novel itself and key events in the life of the woman that spawned it - the stories of Victor Frankenstein, creator of a monster, and Mary Shelley, creator of one of the most celebrated horror stories of all time. The production is to be performed in the medieval hall at Crook Hall and Gardens on the 28th & 29th October.
