Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

The dramatic work of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is brought to life by three actors in a new play that takes the themes of this nearly 200-year old classic and proves how terrifyingly relevant it remains today. Supported by a NH Humanities Community Project Grant, The Hampstead Stage Company presents scholar-led talkbacks with theatre experts following a one-hour original adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein’s maddening journey of creation and failure comes to life with a spark, revealing the truth behind Dr. Frankenstein’s creation and the irreversible horrors that quickly unfold. Join us for facilitated discussions exploring the connections among science, technology, and art – and that essential humanities question – what it means to be human. Recommended for ages 13+. More information can be found at
