About the show

A young scientist dreams of reanimating the dead in this electric new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein. As the world grapples with the proliferation of artificially intelligent life, this gothic fable hits a nerve. This production is a pitch-black fever dream, visually striking and horrific.

Adapted and directed by NIDA’s Head of Directing Benjamin Schostakowski, who recently directed two striking works for NIDA, Metamorphosis and The Seagull.
