After losing his mother to scarlet fever, an ambitious young scientist buries himself in his studies to discover the source of life. At the university he secretly builds a human out of stolen corpses and succeeds in bringing life to the body, but he is horrified by the ugliness of his creation and what he perceives to be its innate evil. Abandoned, “the monster” sets on a quest to find love and to exact revenge on its creator. Come celebrate the 200th birthday of one of the greatest horror stories ever told, Mary Shelley’s timely tale of humanity’s obsession with knowledge and of the unintended consequences of scientific innovation.
