A story told, a life ignited, the legend created… A nightmare begins.

1816, the year without a summer, stories of fear and horror are told by candlelight. One of the stories born that dark weekend was Frankenstein. Proteus’ version blends the novel with the story of the book’s creation during the infamous weekend shared by Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley and Lord Byron, created in Proteus’ unique style. Ages 12+

Please note: The 7.30pm performance of Frankenstein on October 29 has been cancelled.
