Arrows & Traps breathes life into Frankenstein tale at Jack Studio Theatre

I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together.

Arrows & Traps Theatre returns to the South London’s Jack Studio Theatre next month with its chilling production of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Adapted and directed by Ross McGregor, Arrows & Traps breathes life into this classic story with a remarkable new version of this thrilling and haunting Gothic tale about the dangers of scientific irresponsibility and parental neglect.

The production is in celebration of the 200 year anniversary since Mary Shelley wrote the original manuscript.

Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant and ambitious young student, discovers the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead.

But elation at his triumph turns to horror when he realises the full extent of his monstrous creation.

Abandoned by the one who made him, Frankenstein’s Creature is left alone in a world that fears and rejects him and soon his innocence turns to misery.

Increasingly desperate and vengeful, he is determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying bargain.

Frankenstein stars Christopher Tester as Victor Frankenstein and Will Pinchin as The Creature.

The remaining cast are Cornelia Baumann, Olly Brassell, Victoria LLewellyn, Philip Ridout, Beatrice Vincent and Zoe Dales.

Frankenstein runs at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre from September 26-October 21 (suitable for 14+) before moving to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, November 2-4.
