Castle Theatre Company and Green Door present ‘Frankenstein’, by Mary Shelley, adapted for radio animation by Sophie Wright.

The world’s most famous horror story. Uniquely adapted for radio animation and accompanied by original illustrations, witness the timeless classic that has instilled fear and curiosity as we ask the ever-intriguing question: what happens after death?

A twisted, upside-down creation myth, Mary Shelley’s Gothic tale lays bare the dark side of science, and the horror within us all. Written after a nightmare when its author was only eighteen, the infamous story is of Victor Frankenstein, who plunders graveyards to create a new being from the bodies of the dead – but whose botched creature causes nothing but murder and destruction.
