Doctor Frankenstein's Magical Creature
by Stanton Wood
directed by Edward Elefterion
Stanton Wood’s new play, DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN'S MAGICAL CREATURE, tells the strange and wonderful story of the female creature. Both a sequel (to last fall’s THE TRAGIC STORY OF DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN) and an independent play, this dynamic new version will feature multiple actors playing the same role, Kabuki techniques, and the narrative techniques of story theatre to put a new spin on one of the world’s classic stories. While last fall’s installment focused on Doctor Victoria Frankenstein, this play will tell the young female creature’s side of the story—from hideous creation to spectacular annihilation. Rabbit Hole Ensemble's signature minimalism and renowned physical theatre techniques theatrically create the entire world of the play including desolate Arctic landscapes, lush aural soundscapes, and desperate, stormy nights in a laboratory.
