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.”
