BLACKEYED Theatre brings its new production of Frankenstein to Poole’s Lighthouse on 21st and 22nd March, the penultimate date of its UK spring tour.
Created by the same team as the acclaimed 2013 production of Dracula, this brand new adaptation marks the bicentenary last summer of Mary Shelley’s Gothic horror masterpiece. Frankenstein fuses ensemble storytelling, live music and stunning theatricality.
A unique feature is the use of Bunraku-style puppetry to portray The Creature. Designed and built by Yvonne Stone , the full size 6ft 4in puppet, which needs up to three people to manipulate it, adds an exciting new dimension to the retelling of the classic story.
