“Manual Cinema is talent incarnate” Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

“Incredibly ingenious … Manual Cinema has invented a new genre” Alison Flett, InDaily

Love, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways in this thrilling classic gothic tale conceived by Manual Cinema. Stories of Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and his Monster expose how the forces of family, community, and education shape personhood—or destroy it by their absence.

In a special world premiere presentation, internationally-renowned multimedia company Manual Cinema stitches together the classic story of Frankenstein with Mary Shelley’s own biography to create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation. Manual Cinema combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create immersive visual stories for stage and screen.

SPECIAL EVENT! On October 31, be the very first to experience Manual Cinema’s world premiere production of Frankenstein at the final dress rehearsal. Before the show, partake in a frightfully fun Halloween party hosted by the caped and cursed at Court Theatre. Compete in our ghoulishly glamorous costume contest and enjoy horror d’oeuvres and a creepy cocktail on us. → DARE TO JOIN US!
