Am I not shunned and hated by all mankind?
Forget the conventional shock and horror associated with the Frankenstein story, Blue Apple presents a tender and bittersweet portrait of this classic outsider as told by other outsiders.
Reflective, lyrical and contemplative, this brand new adaptation looks again at the sadness and madness that lie behind the murder and mayhem. Faithful to and commenting on Mary Shelley’s original words, this version takes us back to the fundamental principles of a Frankenstein tale that is resonant for our own times.
Blue Apple weaves a retelling of the classic tale we all think we know with contemporary reflections on the themes of alienation, otherness and prejudice – issues as pertinent today as they were in 1818 are explored by a cast with lived-experience.
