THE STORY

In a narrated prologue, Robert Walton, captain of a polar exploration ship, discovers the dying Victor Frankenstein adrift on a floe of ice. The remainder of the show tells Victor's story in flashback.

ACT ONE

A child prodigy, Victor is inspired by the death of his mother to research the secrets of life and death. Whilst studying in Ingolstadt, he claims the body of a condemned criminal and uses it as a basis for his experiments into reanimating the dead. He successfully creates a living Creature - but it is so hideous in appearance that Victor, terrified, sets fire to his laboratory, and believes the Creature has perished in the flames.

But the Creature has survived. Confused, lonely, and in pain, Creature seeks out his creator, expecting a father's love, only to find himself an object of hatred and fear. He embarks on a mission to rob Victor of his happiness and loved ones in an attempt to make Victor realise the pain of loneliness, and to persuade him to create an equally hideous female companion for him. As part of his campaign, the Creature murders Victor's younger brother, William, ensuring that the blame falls on the family's faithful servant, Justine, who is hanged for William's murder.


ACT TWO

Victor, anxious to appease the Creature and end his family's suffering, begins to create the female creature, but eventually destroys her, fearing the horror that two such creatures might bring to the world. In retaliation, the Creature murders Victor's best friend Henry and, finally, his bride, Elizabeth. Victor's father, Alphonse, the last surviving member of Victor's family & friends, is grief-stricken by the latest tragedies, and dies of shock, leaving Victor to "walk this world alone". The Creature, meanwhile, has been emotionally touched by the love Victor's family have for him, and powerfully expresses his remorse for his deeds and his hatred for the impulse which has driven him to kill.

Finally alone and as desolate as his Creature, Victor chases the Creature across Europe to the Arctic Ocean, where, finally realising his paternal obligations to the Creature, he begs the Creature's forgiveness on his deathbed, accepting him as his "son."
