102: Frankenstein in Love

Spread the love

In Episode 102, Ryan, Rob and José talk about the theater play “Frankenstein In Love” from the December 1995 volume Incarnations, a play written in 1981 and produced by the Dog Company in 1982. We touch upon the origins of the Theatre du Grand Guignol and how it influenced a style of its own, compare it to  Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel, how Artaud’s Theater of Cruelty concept also influenced Clive Barker while writing this play and our upcoming Fundraiser this year, which will be our first Kickstarter. So thanks for listening and please continue to support us as a non-profit podcast (bi-weekly or so) about the works of Clive Barker.
