2.00PM & 7.00PM

An imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse Co-Production inspired by Mary Shelley’s novel.

Remember, that I am thy creature; l ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel… 

A storm gathers outside. In an ordinary home, the lights flicker, a radio crackles, and an extraordinary tale begins.

As a couple confront their own fears about impending parenthood, the story of Frankenstein erupts into life around them, as everyday objects are transformed into glaciers, a ship at sea, a dissecting room, a house on fire...

imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse’s multimedia exploration of Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic is a psychological thriller which dares to ask the question - what is it to be human?
