Core presents ‘Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus’ at The Roper!


What makes a man monstrous and a monster human? A tale of playing god and identity lost, Core Theatre Ensemble’s original adaptation of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece is resurrected for 3 performances only at the historic Roper Theater in Downtown Norfolk.

One of the first literary works of sci-fi/horror genre, the story presents a frightening premise even in modern times. After discovering the secrets of animating human remains, Victor Frankenstein assembles body parts to create a living monster. As they search for morality and purpose in the world, we follow creation vs. creator down a path of destruction fueled by hate and revenge. The eventual confrontation between them leaves a wake of death and ultimately reduces both to ruins.

CORE Theatre Ensemble is an internationally touring theatre company based in Norfolk, Virginia Since 2007, CORE has performed locally as well as in NYC, Quebec, Belgium, Spain, and Lithuania.
