A chilling new telling of a timeless story.
Frankenstein, Mary Shelley's cautionary tale about ego and hubris, has fascinated audiences since 1818. Classical Theatre Company presents the world premiere of David Elendune's award-winning adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Frankenstein, on now at the Pearl Company.
Written by David Elendune, directed by Gary Santucci, this adaptation has converted the character of Clerval to a female role. Shelley, in the original, did not create a strong female character. This wonderful twist provides character development beyond the usual approaches, allowing for male- female sexual tension, failed role models and so much more.
