Sept 25 – Oct 13
Come help us celebrate the 200th anniversary of this horror classic! Fresh from their recent Victoria Fringe box office smashes: Ian Case (War Of 1812) directs David Elendune’s (Sherlock Holmes & The Curse of Moriarty) adaptation of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, winner of the 2017 Classical Theatre Company’s Playwrighting Competition. Staying true to the essence of the original classic by Mary Shelley, David explores the humanity of the characters, and how this is tested through the moral dilemmas they face during the course of the action. This tale presents a once “unthinkable” concept that many could argue is becoming less of an “if” than a “when.” What defines life? What is the value of life? Does anyone have the moral authority over the creation or destruction of what constitutes existence? These are heady questions, but they can also be the stuff of nightmares, and as a prelude to the Halloween season Frankenstein delivers!
“full of surprises—moments of laughter punctuate the tragedy. The language is precise and carries a beautiful formality while conveying the deep feelings the characters carry for one another… intelligent, expertly crafted rendition of Frankenstein.” Janis Lacouvee
“4½ Stars out of 5… the soundscape and the lighting perfectly sets the tone. An etheric thrall was felt when ghostly moments were created… Afterward, with the moon still looking full, the temptation was there—I wanted to go over to Frankenstein’s place and have a marathon of other works to dance the night away.” OTAKU
“Ian Case is the perfect choice for director.” –CBC
