The Creature

An adaptation of Frankenstein

3 Men

90 Minutes


No green skin, no neckbolts--this is an elegant, presentational production based on Mary Shelley's novel. Told from the Creature’s point of view and juxtaposing the stark first years of his existence with the scientist’s denial of his creation, THE CREATURE breathes new life into this timeless supernatural tale in a fugue-like cacophony of horror, revenge, and redemption.


"Allen strips away almost two centuries of stage and one of film melodrama to get to the heart of Shelley's 1818 novel. He mixes and matches its three narrators' stories to bring out the thematic parallels between the hubris of Frankenstein's attempt to create life and Captain Walton's polar expedition, and their contrast with the Creature's simple need for love. It's Allen, though, who's skillfully reassembled the body parts to build this monster. "
