Design & Fabrication for Stage
Frnknstn is a modern mutation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This daring adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic re-imagines Victor Frankenstein as a gene-splicing molecular biologist who creates human life from his own DNA with catastrophic results. The play is set in a holding cell, from which Frankenstein is desperate to set the record straight. The design team at Artfx developed a staging solution for an industrial-style holding cell, which also conveys a sombre and stark mood, a representation of Victor Frankenstein’s lonely and troubled existence.
