Second Self

The Men Who Made Frankenstein


The Men Who Made Frankenstein

Whose bodies were used to create Frankenstein’s monster? No Exit meets Saw in this squirm-inducing twist on Mary Shelley’s horror classic.

1791: Edward and Margaret are condemned to hang. The trapdoors open, the ropes snap tight, and they wake, horrified but alive. Now they’re trapped in Dr. Frankenstein’s cells, and their debt for rescue is due. The payment: healthy flesh, ripe for transplant!

Celebrating 200 years since Shelley completed Frankenstein, Second Self’s unique adaptation dissects the ethics of human experimentation and consent. A haunting show about a question everyone faces: who really owns our bodies after we die?
