FROM THE 2ND TO THE 6TH OF OCTOBER the Geneva English Drama Society (GEDS) presents presents Nick Dear’s stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic gothic horror novel Frankenstein. Written 202 years ago in Geneva, the story depicts the terrifying confrontation between a man obsessed with his own quest for knowledge, and his creation, who did not ask to be created. On the shores of Lake Geneva in 1818, in a Europe still reeling from revolution and bloody conflict, a Europe in transition between superstition and science, Shelley’s collection of unforgettable characters guides us down an unrelenting path to the dark conflict between the mind and the heart at the core of modern society.
