In an adventurous retelling of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, acclaimed director and The Hypocrites founder and artistic director Sean Graney combines live performance with the classic 1931 film with Boris Karloff. Graney’s four-actor, multimedia, promenade production is timed well for Halloween and places the audience onstage amidst the actors and the film. This inventive play combines several historical versions of the gothic tale to craft a contemporary literary monster that captures the pure horror and chilling philosophy of the creation myth, wherein the creation ultimately destroys its creator.
