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...
