Frankenstein told by Ben Haggarty with music from Sianed Jones


He's naked

He's angry

And he's on the run...


Enter a world of feverish dreaming, as storyteller Ben Haggarty, and musician Sianed Jones, embark on an intense monster's-lib interpretation of Mary Shelley's modern myth.


Truly a story for our time, Frankenstein speaks of power unleashed; the responsibility of the creator towards the created, and our fear of the unknown.


Expect wild song, steam punk & fast-paced epic storytelling in the hands of two master performers.

Katy writes: I first saw Ben tell this story in 2007 and it was utterly gripping, incredibly exciting, very moving - it made a lasting impression on me and I can't wait to hear it again in collaboration with Sianed.
