True to the Mary Shelley original, except for a comic servant role, the play depicts The Creature with as much horror and sympathy as the original. Ideal for Halloween! Earlier versions of this full-length adaptation by Kathleen McBlair have been performed in school and community theaters since 1980. Audiences love it and scream heartily every time the Creature arrives in the window.

This play was a finalist in the 1988 Virginia Prize for Playwriting.Read More
