Blue Apple Theatre Company’s Frankenstein Comes to Rome

Blue Apple Theatre Company’s Frankenstein Comes to Rome

Saturday 15 October 2022 — Sunday 16 October 2022

Blue Apple Theatre’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is coming to Rome this October.

The play, which was first performed as part of the KS200 programme in Winchester, will be staged on 15th and 16th October at the St. Stephen’s School Lyceum Theatre, Via Aventina 3, Rome.

Book tickets to the performances below.

Blue Apple weaves a retelling of the classic tale we all think we know with contemporary reflections on the themes of alienation, otherness and prejudice – issues as pertinent today as they were in 1818 are explored by a cast with lived-experience. 

Reflective, lyrical and contemplative, this brand-new adaptation looks again at the sadness and madness that lie behind the murder and mayhem. Faithful to and commenting on Mary Shelley’s original words, this version takes us back to the fundamental principles of a Frankenstein tale that is resonant for our own times.
