Frankenstein. You’re likely familiar with the story but did you know that this year we are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the infamous Mary Shelley infamous novel? In the spirit of celebrating, we thought we would share a few more things you may not know about this iconic story:
We have two great plays about Frankenstein in our catalogue. Help your students take part in the celebration with one of these two offerings:
Frankenstein vs the Horrendous Goo
A mix-up in the chemistry club creates a horrendous goo that takes over John Dalton School. Students, administrators and even parents get “goo-ed” by this mysterious green slime with a mind of its own.
Frankenstein Among the Dead
Thunder and lightning tear apart the night sky while two young women explore the story of Frankenstein: Mary Shelley, who wrote the original novel, and Elsa, mysterious and determined to learn Mary’s secrets, including the most important of all… how to bring the dead to life.
FABULOUS roles for women in a story that is traditionally male and monster dominated. Tremendously theatrical, easy to stage, and a great fit for fall season productions!
