Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley adapted by John Ginman a Black Eyed Theatre Production

Thursday 16th March at 7:30pm

Marking the bicentenary of the creation of Frankenstein, Blackeyed Theatre’s brand new stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s gothic horror masterpiece embarks on a five-month UK tour.

Geneva, 1816 - Victor Frankenstein obsesses in pursuit of nature’s secret, the elixir of life itself. But nothing can prepare him for what he creates. So begins a gripping life or death adventure taking him to the ends of the earth and beyond.

Adapted by John Ginman, who penned Blackeyed Theatre’s hugely successful 2013 production of Dracula, this world premiere fuses bold ensemble storytelling, live music, puppetry and stunning theatricality to create a fresh telling of what has become a landmark work of literature.

A unique feature of the production is the use of Bunraku-style puppetry to portray The Creature. Designed and built by Yvonne Stone (Warhorse, His Dark Materials), the full size 6’4” puppet, which needs up to 3 people to manipulate it, adds an exciting new dimension to the retelling of the classic story.

Director Eliot Giuralarocca says, I’m really excited to be directing Frankenstein. It's a taut, gripping thriller, an exciting gothic fairy tale for grown-ups and a morality play all rolled into one. It’s always a daunting challenge to attempt to breathe new life into a classic but with a wonderful ensemble cast and a fusion of bold storytelling, music, sound and Bunraku-style puppetry I'm hoping we can bring Mary Shelley’s gothic fairy tale kicking and screaming into life!

John Ginman comments, Working on this has left me full of admiration for the achievement of the nineteen-year-old novice writer, who responded to the challenge of inventing a ghost story ‘to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart’. This version seeks to provoke thought and discussion around many key issues that have renewed significance for us today including the ethics of genetic experimentation, and the causes of violent behaviour in some marginalised social groups.

The cast includes Ben Warwick as Victor Frankenstein (seasons at The National Theatre, Theatre Royal York, Royal Theatre Northampton, Watford Palace and The Finborough), Max Gallagher as Henry Clerval (Home Fires - ITV, James & The Giant Peach - Sell A Door, PIAF - Charing Cross/Bridewell), Lara Cowin as Elizabeth Lavenza (The Obfuscati - Theatre 503, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom - Fiery Angel), Louis Labovitch (STOMP! - US tour, Leave Hitler to Me - Arts Theatre) and Ashley Sean-Cook (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - Children’s Touring Partnership, My Pet Monster & Me – Blunderbus UK tour).

The production is supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England.

An Evening With Howard Jones solo - the songs, the piano and the stories.

Friday 31st March at 7:30pm

It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music
scene with his very English songwriting, pioneering synthesizers and thought
provoking lyrics. He set out his manifesto in his very first single ‘ New Song’.
The lyrics called on the listener to challenge their preconceived ideas, to see
both sides and ‘throw off your mental chains’. New Song was recently used in
a pivotal scene in ‘Breaking Bad’ where Aaron Paul’s character Jessie
Pinkman questions if he wants to ‘play by the rules’. New Song peaked at
number 3 in the UK singles charts.
Along with ‘New Song’, The first two albums, ‘Humans Lib’ and ‘Dream into
Action’, brought Howard a host of hits including ‘Things Can Only Get Better’,
‘What is Love?’, ‘Pearl In The Shell’, ‘Like to Get To know You Well’, ‘Hide And
Seek’ (performed at Live Aid), ‘Look Mama’ and ‘No One Is To Blame’, which
reached No.1 in the US. Howard has sold over 8 million albums across the
globe and is one of a select group of British artists who have comprehensively
‘broken America’.
Howard Jones solo shows are an intimate trip through Howard's 30 year
music career. Many of his best known songs were composed on his favourite
instrument; the piano. Howard shares behind the scenes stories and reveals
the inspiration behind the songs in this critically acclaimed show.
Sellersville PA Review
On a recent solo stop at The Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA, Jones returned to his most basic
musical roots. Sitting alone by a single keyboard and providing the two things that matter most – the
music and the message. On this night, there would be no lavish arsenal of synthesizers or '80s hair and
fashion. Instead, Jones' performance would be a stripped down, magical, acoustic event.
For nearly ninety minutes, Howard Jones performed songs spanning his vast catalog of hits as well as a
new track from Engage (“Joy”) and a few deeper cuts. Songs like “What Is Love,” “Don’t Always
Look At The Rain” and “Things Can Only Get Better” took on new meaning but still left you with the
same feel good memories from the decade of MTV. Always passionate and at times vulnerable, Jones’
