Frankenstein

February 20 - March 10

Burn Bright Theatre return to the Space this Spring with a visceral, feminist new version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

A brilliant scientist. An extraordinary imagination. A boundary that shouldn’t be crossed.

In the darkness of night, Elizabeth Frankenstein manages the unthinkable – creating sentient life.

As the resulting monster is shunned by her maker, she is cast out into the violent and unfeeling world beyond. But a terrible chain of murder and horror is unleashed, both creation and creator must come face to face in a final, terrible showdown.

Featuring our trademark brand of ensemble theatre and live music, ideas of gender and power are brought to life in a new retelling of history’s greatest horror story.
