Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (stage version)

By Mary Shelley and Rona Munro

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

An eighteen-year-old girl, Mary Shelley, dreams up a monster whose tragic story will capture the imaginations of generations to come.

A young scientist by the name of Frankenstein breathes life into a gruesome body. Banished into an indifferent world, Frankenstein's creature desperately seeks out his true identity, but the agony of rejection and a broken promise push him into darkness. Dangerous and vengeful, the creature threatens to obliterate Frankenstein and everyone he loves, in a ferocious and bloodthirsty hunt for his maker.

Rona Munro's 'inventive feminist adaptation' (The Stage) of Mary Shelley's Gothic masterpiece places the writer herself amongst the action as she wrestles with her creation and with the stark realities facing revolutionary young women, then and now. It premiered on a tour of the UK in 2019.

Extra Content: Rona Munro on adapting Frankenstein for the stage, from Glasgow Theatre Blog, 19 August 2019.

Press Quotes

'An inventive feminist adaptation... an exploration and celebration of female creativity'

The Stage

'By putting Mary onstage at the centre of things rather than a mere framing device, Munro has written something that gets to the heart of the creative process itself'
