The Tragic Story of Doctor Frankenstein
**OPENING NIGHT, October 28th is a Benefit Performance/Halloween Party. $50 for the show, plus party with food and wine following. We hope you'll join us! All other performances $18 ($15 Students/Seniors).**
Rabbit Hole Ensemble celebrates its Fifth Anniversary by returning to one of literature's most influential and horrible stories. Using physical theatre techniques, Kabuki, and the narrative foundation of story-theatre, this expressionistic gender-bending minimalist adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel focuses exclusively on the doctor's side of the story. Much like the company's award-winning adaptation of Dracula (THE NIGHT OF NOSFERATU), RHE is working with resident playwright Stanton Wood in a year-long exploration of Frankenstein and its themes; Part 2 will tell the same story, focusing on the monster's side of the story (to be presented in 2011).
Rabbit Hole has a reputation for exciting, highly theatrical, and aggressively minimalist twists on classic stories:
"Rabbit Hole Ensemble has atmosphere in spades...Wood's adaptation is ingenious...The simplicity works like a dream, in fact like a nightmare...The spookiest effects are those we can imagine for ourselves...a grand and spine-tingling production."
Audiences won't want to miss the birth of a new Rabbit Hole monster.
