Frankenstein - imitating the dog
An imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse Co-Production Frankenstein
Inspired by Mary Shelley’s novel
Remember, that I am thy creature; l ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel…
A storm gathers outside as a couple pack up a room. Clothes and toys are carefully stored away in boxes and bags. Lightning flashes. Picking up a book, the woman reads aloud. It’s a story about ambition and playing God, and about what happens when we bring new life into the world. It’s also about rejection, horror and revenge. It’s the story of Frankenstein.
As the couple confront their own fears, they re-create a version of Frankenstein that erupts into life as everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, a house on fire…
The latest adaptation in a series of Gothic texts, imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse’s multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s classic novel is a psychological thriller which dares to ask the question – what is it to be human?
