Partridge, John-Robert.jpg

Mary Shelley is the godmother of modern horror and Tread the Boards brings it's stunning and spinetingling adaptation of her monumental classic Frankenstein vividly to life. This Victoriana tale of nature verses nurture captures the relationship between Doctor Frankenstein, his passion for science and the 'Monster' he creates. Underneath the terrifying exterior of this thrilling play there is a touching and heart-felt, comment on the human condition and questions who really is the dark sole in this story. 
*This performance has elements of 'scare' acting and is not recommended for those with heart conditions, a nervous disposition or expectant mothers.

COVID19 precautions: Our seating capacity has been reduced and is unallocated for the present, in order to allow space between groups when seated. We would appreciate it if you wore a mask when moving around the building but masks are not required while seated in the theatre.
