It’s 1818, and Victor Frankenstein is a medical student at Ingolstadt University on the verge of a scientific breakthrough: His goal is to reverse death. Ignoring warnings from those around him, Frankenstein puts together a human body with parts from different corpses and brings it to life. But rather than celebrate his success, Frankenstein abhors the “Monster” he created and curses its existence. When the Monster pleads for compassion, Frankenstein rejects him, and the Monster seeks revenge through a series of murders. This succinct one-act retelling of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece calls into question the lines between hero and villain and asks: What are the costs of science without responsibility or empathy?
