‘If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!’

One of the greatest gothic tales of all time will come to life in the eerily atmospheric Wilton’s Music Hall in an extraordinary new production of Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein, from 7 – 18 March.

The original story was written when Shelley was just 18 years old, and tells the tale of Frankenstein, a young scientist who brings a gruesome body to life. Cast out into a hostile world, Frankenstein’s creature searches for his true identity and, on realising how he came to be, learns the pain of rejection and broken promises.

Vengeful, dangerous and in bloodthirsty pursuit of his maker, the creature threatens to destroy Frankenstein and the lives of everyone he loves. This brand new version of Shelley’s immortal tale is directed by Eleanor Rhode and reimagined by Tristan Bernays (writer and director of Teddy, winner of Best New Musical at the 2016 Off West End Awards and of Boudica at the Globe Theatre this coming autumn).

Tristan says ‘‘I love monsters because they remind us what it is to be human- Frankenstein is a truly great monster story and I’m thrilled to be bringing this adaptation to the ethereal and atmospheric Wilton’s Music Hall.’’

A transfer from the award winning, internationally renowned Watermill Theatre where it enjoyed a successful short run in 2016, George Fletcher and Rowena Lennon perform this take on a powerful and dark masterpiece that explores the timeless relationship between parent and child, isolation, prejudice and revenge and speaks to our modern society.

She's shit hot and we love her. We love her new video for Venus Fly just as much.

Multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes shares the official video for 'Venus Fly.' The video, directed and edited by Grimes, also features Janelle Monáe. 'Venus Fly' is now live on Grimes' YouTube; watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/VenusFlyYT

"We used the Phantom cameras to create a feeling of time suspended," said Grimes of the inspiration behind the video.

'Venus Fly' is taken from Grimes' critically-adored album 'Art Angels' (4AD) which had prime placement on basically every End of Year list. Last year, Grimes toured the album, selling out venues and headlining festivals across the world.
