REVIEW  ‘This production does a tremendous job of bringing Mary Shelley’s creation to life.’

The chorus frequently narrates extracts from Shelley’s text, adding gravitas and intensity to the performance, while Damien de Roche is outstanding as Victor.The juxtaposition of the De Lacey’s reading ‘Genesis’ while the creature reads Victor’s journal is excellently executed as is the brief rapprochement of Victor and the creature, whilst they quote Milton to one another. The dramatically lit wedding scene is a real highlight, ominous and tense, foreshadowing the inevitable tragedy to come. A gothic classic!’
