Frankenstein at Liverpool Playhouse, City Centre 17 — 20 April 2024 Tickets from £11.00 — Book now

Bringing another gripping show and the latest in their series of Gothic adaptations, the award-winning experimental theatre company imitating the dog present Frankenstein, a two-hander inspired by Mary Shelley’s classic novel.

A storm is gathering outside. Meanwhile, in an ordinary home, the lights flicker and the radio crackles as an extraordinary tale unfolds. This story is about ambition and playing God – what happens when we bring new life into the world. It’s also about rejection, horror and revenge. This is the story of Frankenstein – imitating the dog style.

As a young couple confront their fears regarding impending parenthood, they re-create their own version of Frankenstein. In imitating the dog’s rich cinematic style, everyday objects transform into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room and a house on fire.

Multi-layered and fascinating, imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse’s multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s classic novel is a psychological thriller that dares to ask the question – what is it to be human?
