Reviews

 

This production premiered as Living Spit’s Frankenstein at Salisbury Playhouse in October 2016, and toured to Weston-super-Mare’s Tropicana.   People came, laughed a lot, and said nice things: 

 

The Times: “...this ribald reworking of her gothic horror classic is a beguiling rib-tickler...the sense of mischief and sheer silliness are difficult to resist"

The Stage: “...fabulous invention and sheer silliness underscore this anarchic adaptation."

Musical Theatre Review “… musically strong, physically very funny and verbally dextrous … big funny bone moments”

Public Review “ ... the polish of Morecambe and Wise”

Frankenstein Tour Info

Two Souls inextricably linked.  One, a tortured and tenacious genius.  The other, a hideous creature made up from bits of other people’s bodies.  

 

With a four-piece band pumping out original music, preposterous puppets, grotesque gags and diabolically desperate dance-moves, this rib-ticklingly raucous monster of a show will leave you in stitches.

 Don’t say we didn’t warn you...
