Adapted by Selma Dimitrijevic

Victoria Frankenstein is a brilliant, visionary young woman born into a world not ready for her. The industrial revolution is dawning, it’s a time when old orders begin to crumble and everything seems possible.
Provided of course, that you are an English-man.
Women are not allowed to study medicine in England, so Victoria travels to Ingolstadt, Bavaria and becomes Dr Frankenstein. Convinced that there is no magic, no God, only undiscovered science, Victoria’s experiments lead her to the very brink of human knowledge: the secret of life itself. In the dark of night, a creature is given life. There is violence, there is anger, there is fear. There will be consequences.
A psychologically disturbing new version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein.
