A Tale of Frankenstein’s Monster
“This is a monster show with heart and soul to spare.” ★★★½ –Chicago Tribune
“Haunting and beautiful!” – The Buzz
“Chilling and suspense filled!” – ChicagoCritic.com
★★★½ – Chicago Stage Standard
In one of Bavaria’s forgotten cemeteries, a lone gravedigger finds a hideously scarred man hiding in a fresh grave. Thus begins a harrowing journey as the men discover their shared past with its gruesome and deadly secrets.
Critics praise Zettelmaier for his “lived-in dialogue” (Chicago Tribune) which is “so natural, you forget it’s scripted” (Daily Herald), and the “tension-infused spirit” of his plays (Sun-Times News Group).
