Mount Vernon High School presented Danielle Mohlman’s “Frankenstein, Episode 1,” a radio play adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. They not only retold the classic tale of Victor Frankenstein and his creature but drew parallels with Mary Shelley’s tragic life.
According to The Connection Newspapers, “Mount Vernon faced the challenge of online performance and overcame it by making the strong choice of using audio-only. The actors and techs had the audience feeling like they were following the characters as they ran from one place to the next and created emotion and depth without the physicality that can feel necessary to put on a performance.”
As per The Connection Newspapers, “Theatre is currently limited by COVID-19, but Mount Vernon was able to exceed the expectations of the audience by creating such a strong environment with every single aspect of the show. And there is more than just “Frankenstein, Episode 1.” They left the story on a cliffhanger and will keep audiences entertained for a total of 7 episodes. Instead of binging a TV show or podcast, allow Mount Vernon to bring you back to the theatre and immerse you in the world of Mary Shelley with just a computer and a pair of headphones.”
