From the opening tremor of organ music and thunderclaps in The Passion of Frankenstein, listeners are jettisoned from their comfortable, modern lives into the gothic confines of Schloss Frankenstein. The tension in this audiobook is immediate, as young Elizabeth, in a mischievous performance from Karen Barrett, arrives at the castle of her lover, the tragic scientist Victor Frankenstein, earlier than planned. It is not just Dr. Frankenstein’s experiments that are cause for alarm here, but his famed creation, Frankenstein’s Monster, who has been haunting the property. Mary Shelley’s classic is given a new life with this performance from the accomplished Atlantic Radio Theatre Company.
But Darkness can hide heroes, and monsters can walk in the light.
And sometimes not even the Maiden can tell them apart.
This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization - a retelling of the Mary Shelley classic.
