Doctor Frankenfaust

Nun's Island Theatre
 Friday, 01 November 2019 20:00 Place: Nun's Island Theatre

The story of Frankenstein (both in the novel and films) has given us an enduring and powerful metaphor for the many scientific and technological dilemmas we now face in the twenty-first century, while the German legend of Dr. Faust, serves as a warning against the inherent dangers of turning to Magic in order to gain infinite knowledge.

Put Frankenstein and Faust together and you get FRANKENFAUST!

Taking inspiration from such high camp Gothic as James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein and old Hammer Horror films, Doctor Frankenfaust, by Tommy Baker and Brendan Murphy is a multimedia satirical play exploring the themes of modern political occultism, chaos magic and conspiracy theories.


Be careful! You might be shocked! You might be stunned! You might feel the hair on your head being numbed!

Consensus reality is falling apart ... The world is ruled by Black Magic, psychopathic Satanists ... There is a global agenda to enslave the psyche of the whole human race ... Or is it all in the mind of Dr. Kevin Frankenfaust? He has built a machine that can summon a host of demons, but as our tech-illogical world becomes increasingly bombarded with ‘facts’ ... we have to ask ... which ones are real?

A splendid night’s entertainment for Halloween, this light-hearted, dystopian nightmare will be performed at Nun’s Island Theatre on Thursday 31st October and Friday 1st November.
