Mary Shelley's enduring gothic classic Frankenstein was written two-hundred years ago. To honour this milestone, the University of Winnipeg's Department of Theatre and Film has arranged for Ari Weinberg, Artistic Driector of the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre, to direct Dorothy Louise's stirring stage adaptation of Shelley's literary masterpiece.

"No work of literature has done more to shape the way people imagine science and its moral consequences than Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus, Mary Shelley's enduring tale of creation and responsibility," claims the University of Arizona's Frankenstein Bicentennial Project.

Dorothy Louise's stage adaptation is full of stark theatricality and palpable drama. Ms Louise incorporates elements of Mary Shelley's life into the narrative chronicles the creation of the famed novel paralleled alongside Victor Frankenstein's creation of his creature.

Frankenstein will be staged in an alleyway configuration by director Weinberg featuring a haunting set design, complete with gargoyles by senior design student Darryl Audette, mercurial lighting by department graduate Ksenia Broda Millian, and simple and evocatively gothic costumes by Lauren Martin. All production work is done by senior production students.
