When someone kills, when their crime is so terrible, so incomprehensible, can we still call them human? Who is to blame? Who and/or what creates monsters?
Taking Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as inspiration, The Creature takes place in the mind and the prison cell of a young boy in a secure unit as he attempts to avoid taking responsibility for what he has done whilst also trying to understand it.
Developed through work with young offenders, this specially commissioned play explores the origins of criminal behaviour and asks what it is that makes us monsters.
From Lucy Gough, the author of acclaimed production The Wolf Tattoo (2018).
