The production will play at the theatre from the 27th February.

Casting has been announced for the Rose Theatre’s upcoming production of The Creature: Frankenstein Retold, based on Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and adapted for the stage by Ciaran McConville.

Directed by Lucy Morrell, the production’s cast is formed of Rose Youth Theatre alumni, including: Billy Brown (Henri/Landlord), Eleanor Clark (The Creator), Katherine Liley (Flic/Safi), Louis Mertens (Mr Kirwin/Elias/Aleksei), Joshua King Milne (Professor Waldman/Fira/ Moritz), Frankie Oldham (Mr Kremp/Vadim), Anna Pryce (The Creature), Francis Redfern (Ralf Wile) and Daisy Tucker (Elizabeth). All are making their professional debut.

An arctic vessel trapped in the frozen ocean, takes on a stranger far from shore, who warns of an impending attack from a creature of superhuman strength. As the captain tries to find some way of defending his cargo, a horrifying story emerges.

Talking about the production, Lucy Morrell said: “It is brilliant to be working with a group of our outstanding young performers in bringing The Creature: [Frankenstein Retold] to the Rose main stage. This is an exciting production and these young artists are a testament to the Rose’s commitment to supporting young people in the community. I’m thrilled that we’re able to offer them this opportunity to make their professional stage debut.”

The Creature: Frankenstein Retold will play at the Rose Theatre from the 27th to the 29th February.
