Frankenstein is Mary Shelley’s gothic novel adapted for a world that was once unimaginable – one in which life can be conceived in a laboratory instead of a womb. Doctor Frankenstein is a childless woman, a scientist obsessed with becoming a mother. One night she succeeds in her experiments and sparks life into a monstrous creature – a miraculous conception. Has Frankenstein taken things too far, to a place where the violent need to procreate has upset the balance of nature itself?
The RABBLE's production of Frankenstein is part traditional gothic horror and part homage to the aesthetics of alchemy. The RABBLE is Malthouse Theatre's 2014 Company in Residence.
"THE RABBLE HAS BEEN A COMPANY TO WATCH FOR SOME YEARS ... ONE WHICH OTHER COMPANIES WILL BE WELL-ADVISED TO TAKE NOTICE OF."
"THEATRE LIKE NO ONE ELSE DARES TO MAKE."
