CREATURE is a 60-minute adaptation of "Frankenstein" that uses live music, puppetry & projection to tell a story filled with human connection, wretchedness & wonder. This imaginative retelling of Creature's origin story features a 7-foot-tall Creature, live rock & roll accompaniment, tabletop puppetry, shadow play & projected imagery.
Our adaptation seeks to restore the intelligence, grace & violence with which the novel's author Mary Shelley originally imbued it. Follow Creature from its birth to its travels through the wilderness where it faces choices that will define it as human or monster.
Supported in part by The Jim Henson Foundation & The Kentucky Arts Council.
