A co-production with the Bristol Old Vic and the Lyric Hammersmith, this was the chilling tale of one woman, three men and a Bolt from the Blue.
It was an immense stage journey into the Frankenstein myth with nods towards the whole horror genre - movies, comics, and creation myths from The Golem to Terminator.
Determined to oust the great Professor Sailcloth’s domination of Frankenstein academia, David G. Scrivener travels to Switzerland to uncover the actual Spark of Life, which he is convinced is secreted in a remote churchyard in the mountains. But the diabolic hotelier Count Obladee confounds him every step of the way, until David G. finds himself drawn into a hellish parody of the original novel itself, replete with a grotesquely cartoon-like Igor and the ghastly Monster himself. Here he is forced to use his knowledge of all things Frankensteinian to make The Monster’s Mate.
