Just in time for #SpookySeason, New Jersey Playwright/Actor Michael Gardiner has crafted his own version of Mary Shelley's classic tale. His new play, Frankenstein Unbound, explores a "what-if" scenario: What if Victor Frankenstein completed his animation of The Bride?

The first sci-fi novel has been adapted numerous times into movies, plays, and other media, but this version is sure to be the first of its kind. Focused on Victor's "building" of the Bride and what comes after, this new play explores the modern Prometheus with plenty of references to the Bible, Shakespeare, and other classic literature. 

Note: due to strong language and mature themes, viewer discretion is strongly advised!

Come be a part of new play development and kick off the Halloween season!
