Dark story of Frankenstein invented by Mary Shelley, an English writer of the romantic period, became an inspiration for Mateusz Pakuła to write a brand new play.

It is a strange catalog of characters, who share a common denominator – they all have been created by human being.

Beside Frankenstein’s Monster an author recalls Pinocchio and genetically programmed Eve, and throws them into a surreal meeting. Their therapeutic – music - session develops into a manifesto of ideas and views on the contemporary conditions of humanity, the limits of interference in the nature, value of social relations and political systems.

The creators of the show refer to the traditions of the drama of the twentieth century, but also use elements of puppet theater, musical experimentation and mixing of the conventions, inviting viewers to the world of original forms and undiscovered sounds.
