Blackeyed Theatre have built a reputation as one of the most innovative and creative companies in the UK and their latest show Frankenstein looks to enhance their acclaim.

Featuring live music, puppetry and ensemble storytelling this thrilling adaptation of Mary Shelley’s gothic novel comes to the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds between Tuesday, March 7 and Thursday 9.

The classic story sees young scientist Victor Frankenstein obsess in the pursuit of nature’s secret, the elixir of life itself.
