"The Creature embodies abandonment. What happens when one is cast out, unwanted, scorned by all? The result is usually monstrous. Without some love from someone, we see a transformation from the beauty of innocent light and life to the fallen angel down in a dark, lonely hole." Timothy Ackerman

“. . . at the feet of my Master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie.” – The Creature in Frankenstein
Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old horror story continues to challenge the modern imagination in Nick Dear’s electrifying new adaptation. Given life by a man playing God, a Creature assembled from corpses sets out into the unforgiving world to discover his humanity. As he becomes increasingly desperate for companionship, the Creature confronts his horror-struck creator to strike a terrifying deal.
