Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant and ambitious young student, discovers the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead. But elation at his triumph is replaced by horror when he sees his monstrous creation. Abandoned by the one who made him, Frankenstein's Creature is left to a world that fears and rejects him, and soon his innocence turns to misery and a murderous desire for revenge... Every word in Patrick Sandford's 'vigorous adaptation' (&lt,em The Times&lt,/em ) is lifted directly from Mary Shelley's classic gothic novel. One of the greatest horror stories of all time, and one that still grips readers today almost two hundred years after its first publication. Patrick Sandford's adaptation of &lt,em Frankenstein&lt,/em was first performed at Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, in 2004. All the more successful for staying faithful to the dark spirit of the original book, this adaptation includes notes on the first production and can be performed with a minimum of set and props, making it well suited for staging by schools and amateur theatre groups, as well as by professional companies. 'Atmospheric . haunting . with splendid Gothic horror touches . a truly impressive theatrical experience' —, &lt,em,/em
