Everyone knows the tale. Or do they?
Now, Victor Frankenstein reveals how his name and legacy were destroyed, and why!
His life’s work laid to waste by Mary Shelley’s vindictive novel, Dr. Victor Frankenstein summons an audience of ghosts to an operating theatre to present his side of the story in a bid to salvage his name and reputation.
This new riff on the classic Frankenstein story is not an adaption. It's a new perspective, told by the real Dr. Frankenstein, whose career, life and legacy were destroyed by Mary Shelley's "tall tale." Her story has lived on, been spun into plays, movies, musicals - while his name has been smeared with the label of madness. Tonight, he plans to set the record straight!
OCC Alum George Allison had his play presented by the OCC Rep Theatre on Oct 26-Nov 5, 2023
