The production is created by Co-Artistic Directors Pete Brooks, Andrew Quick and Simon Wainwright.

This multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s classic novel has been described as a psychological thriller “which dares to ask the question – what is it to be human?”

The theatre company, imitating the dog, aim to re-create a version of Frankenstein that “erupts into life” as everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, and a house on fire.

imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed unique shot-for-shot stage recreation of George A. Romero’s classic 1968 zombie movie Night of The Living Dead™ – Remix and the UK Theatre Award-winning Dracula: The Untold Story.
