While the viewing screen up front at the impressive McEwan Hall is relatively quite small, all the stage is required to produce and present this terrific work.

Combining the classic story of Frankenstein with Mary Shelley’s own biography, this internationally acclaimed multi-media company lets its audience in on the creation of the creation. The all female cast work their silhouettes, their screens, their poses for the camera while their musicians biff and bangle their way through the accompanying score, a mobile camera makes big the small work at the front while lighting and thunder cracks keep their audience well wedded in the Gothic theme.

The finished product on the screen is only half the thrill of seeing this production; how it is done is the other. 

Something different and worthwhile with both aspects of the show riveting entertainment.
