Frankenstein debuted in Leeds on Saturday and the city pulsated with a vibrant energy  as we eagerly anticipated an evening of cutting-edge contemporary theatre. From the bustling bus station to the bars brimming with life, the entire city seemed to hum with excitement. Our destination was Leeds Playhouse, where the stage was set for an unforgettable experience: imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse came together for this production of Frankenstein, a highly recommended masterpiece for this month.

As we stepped into the theatre, a wave of warmth greeted us. Little did I know that the opening scene would transport us into a stormy setting as the stage was set for a night of theatrical magic that would linger in our memories.

This production is really, really good. As with a lot of imitating the dog productions, where the normal is not the norm, this was sheer class. The two actors, Georgia-Mae-Myers and Nedum Okonyia play different characters with ease as the dialogue is interlaced with incredible tech wizardry and lighting, it’s a joy to see. This is  an inspired adaptation of the Mary Shelly classic, Frankenstein, and an extraordinary tale. The couple have come to terms with their own fears about upcoming parenthood, amongst other things as the story erupts into life around them. Everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, a house on fire…

This multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic is a psychological thriller which dares to ask the question – what is it to be human?
