Casting announced for imitating the dog’s Frankenstein

imitating the dog’s two-handed version of Frankenstein will feature RSC actor Georgia-Mae Myers and Nedum Okonyia.

This time Co-Artistic Directors Pete Brooks, Andrew Quick and Simon Wainwright offer their trademark multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s timeless classic novel as a psychological thriller asks the eternal question – what is it to be human?    

In this version a couple confront their own fears about impending parenthood as they recreate a version of Frankenstein that erupts into life as everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, and a house on fire.       

Set and Costume Designer Hayley Grindle has created a transformative space j housing the digital tricks and video-mapping techniques traditionally associated with imitating the dog.  

Frankenstein will premiere at Leeds Playhouse from 15th – 24th February and will then tour to Oxford Playhouse, Watford Palace Theatre, The Lowry, Salford Quays, Cast, Doncaster, Mercury Theatre, Colchester, Liverpool Playhouse, The Dukes Lancaster, and Northern Stage, Newcastle. The production will also tour Switzerland in March.  

Frankenstein is at Leeds Playhouse from 15th – 24th February. To book 0113 213 7700 or online www.leedsplayhouse.org.uk
