    An efficient, highly compact adaptation of Mary Shelley's gothic classic which impressively manages to hit the major beats of the novel with only three actors, in a workable, interesting company structure and deft touches in phrasing. A great achievement.

    This is a fast-paced and gripping retelling of a classic tale that hooks you from the start. The casting flexibility is an excellent way to work the production to fit your vision and budget. Highly recommend theatres looking this script over and bringing it to life on their stage.
