First published in 1823,Frankstein tells the unsettling tale of Victor Frankenstein and his experiment to create a living creature—an experiment that goes terribly awry when the creature escapes and begins to plot his revenge. Few know as much about creatures produced by an unorthodox scientific experiments as these theatrical historians in Lenox.
Three actors take on the chilling story of a grisly reanimation—a monster comes to life. This new adaptation, written and directed by (and also starring) Jonathan Croy (King Lear, Director of The 39 Steps), also features David Joseph (The Tempest, The 39 Steps), and Alexandra Lincoln (The Learned Ladies, The Venetian Twins).
