Frankenstein: A Keats-Shelley200 Collaboration with Blue Apple Theatre
We’re thrilled to announce details of a forthcoming dramatic production and collaboration with Blue Apple Theatre, a UK charity transforming the lives of people with learning disabilities through innovative drama, dance, singing and film.
Blue Apple’s planned summer show for 2021 is a co-production with the Keats-Shelley Memorial Association that will be performed in Winchester before a proposed tour in 2022.
The collaboration involves a new interpretation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein followed by a Winchester water meadow walk re-tracing the footsteps of Keats. Watch out for more news about these events planned for 9-11 July 2021.
Blue Apple artistic director Richard Conlon says: “The Blue Apple take on ‘Frankenstein’ will be both faithful and original; going back to the source material and beyond it. There will be no bolts through the neck in our version, but do of course expect the unexpected.”
Visit Blue Apple Theatre for more information about their work.
