About the event

Angel rising…

Slowly, painfully, out of the fusion of rabid light and impenetrable darkness, Angel emerges, alien and alienated, into the world.
Dorset born SISATA present a radical re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Set in a dystopian future, the human race is slowly becoming extinct. With a desperation to save humanity, Angel - a revolutionary procreation of pioneering female scientist Doctor Frankenstein, is created.

A new evolution that has been artificially accelerated – but in this take on the famous gothic tale ‘Frankie’ creates not the monster of convention, but a young woman whose very existence challenges everything.

A disaffected outlander, Angel is confronted by hostility and abandonment in the world, forcing them to take vengeance on their creator, their mother, their clockmaker… Frankenstein.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is radically reimagined in a freeform modern interpretation to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication. The new play embraces the themes of the human ideal of perfection, psychosexual identity and gender politics.

This innovative contemporary reworking of Frankenstein is a collaboration between the much talked about theatre company SISATA, and Offie-nominated BAFTA award-winning playwright, John Foster.

Support by the Arts Council England through the National Lottery, Shelley Theatre and the Shelley Frankenstein Festival and in Partnership with the Lighthouse, Poole.

“This is SISATA’s most experimental classic adaptation to date. Not only is John Foster taking inspiration from the original novel, the play draws from the challenges Mary Shelley faced in her own life. The themes we are addressing in this production are challenging and vital for our times, making this the perfect homage to honour the novel and its creator.” (Charmaine K Parkin, Director)
