By NICK DEAR, from the novel by MARY SHELLEY     Directed by JOEL FERRELL
Feb 2–March 4, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

WHO IS THE REAL MONSTER?

When Dr. Frankenstein’s experiment goes horribly awry, he resolves to destroy the terrifying creature he has unleashed upon the world. But can he kill his own creation without becoming a monster himself? Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old horror story, widely regarded as the original science fiction novel, continues to challenge the modern imagination. And after its sell-out run at London's National Theatre, Nick Dear’s electrifying new adaptation, full of shocking twists and turns, is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as it brings Frankenstein (and his monster) to life. Contains mature themes. Recommended for High School age and up.

Produced in association with the Theatre Division, Meadows School of the Arts / Southern Methodist University.

The performance was incredible. The stage and sets were inspired! They used sound and video images to illustrate so much more drama to the story, it was an additional actor. The lighting and total darkness had the audience jumping. It was one of the finest productions I have ever seen.

"Frankenstein" was an absolutely brilliant play - I'd say it's better than the book. While the creature in the book is pompous and unsympathetic, Kim Fischer's interpretation (while retaining the well-spokeness that pop culture is quick to forget) is lovable and empathy-evoking, even as he grows ever more twisted. Meanwhile, Alex Organ's portrayal of a proud, slightly inhuman Victor Frankenstein is a believable villain who the play, unlike the book, never tries to portray as a hero. The jarringly mechanical and ominous soundtrack (Low Roar's "I'll Keep Coming" would not be out of place), along with the twisting set that flashes with lights and video clips, creates a constant, building tension with a ghastly, nightmarish atmosphere, all building up to a finale that is, in a word, unforgettable. The only real flaw is one that many won't mind - and it is that the humor, at times, as dark as it is, can detract from the gravity a little. Personally, I didn't mind that much. "Frankenstein" is a tragedy worth seeing, and if you're a student, the tickets, at $20, are criminally cheap for such a great play. Two stitched-on and reanimated thumbs up.
