Frankenstein

By Nick Dear

From the novel by Mary Shelley

Directed by Michael Michetti
California Premiere

This electrifying tale of a creature cast away by his creator into a hostile world—only to wind his way back in a dangerous game of destruction—has captivated audiences for over 200 years. The gothic story comes to life with Nick Dear’s adaptation of the chilling fable by Mary Shelley, animating the themes of social rejection, intellectual hubris, and the nascency of good and evil.

Content Advisory: Frankenstein features scenes of violence and is recommended for audiences 10+.
