Doctor Frankenstein's Magical Creature
RABBIT HOLE ENSEMBLE, lauded as "riveting" by The Village Voice, is pleased to present the world premiere of DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN'S MAGICAL CREATURE written by Resident Playwright/NYITA* nominee Stanton Wood, and directed by Rabbit Hole Ensemble Artistic Director/NYITA winner Edward Elefterion.
Rabbit Hole Ensemble (RHE) premiered Part One of their "Year of Frankenstein" in October 2010, with THE TRAGIC STORY OF DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN, which was acclaimed by critics as "fabulously horrific" and "a fantastic and unique interpretation of Mary Shelley's classic." RHE is thrilled to present Part Two, DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN'S MAGICAL CREATURE, which tells the strange and wonderful story of the female creature. Both a sequel and an independent play, this dynamic new version will feature multiple actors playing the same role and the narrative techniques of story theatre to put a new spin on one of the world's classic stories. Directed by Artistic Director Edward Elefterion, the production will feature the same Kabuki theatre techniques, strong physicality, innovative design, and signature minimalism as Part One. Much like RHE's award-winning adaptation of Dracula (THE NIGHT OF NOSFERATU), the company is working with resident playwright Stanton Wood in a year-long exploration of FRANKENSTEIN and its themes; Parts One and Two will come together in a full length production in fall 2011.
