by Nick Dear, from the novel by Mary Shelley
directed by Ian Frank
October 11 – November 17, 2018

Mary Shelley’s revolutionary horror classic is shocked to life in Nick Dear’s adaptation. Retold from the abandoned creature’s point of view, this taut, muscular version raises urgent questions about scientific responsibility, parental neglect, and the nature of good and evil.
