About this show

It was a dark and stormy night in a house by the lake, when Mary Shelley famously took up her host Lord Byron's challenge to write a terrifying story and created Frankenstein, one of the most famous novels in the Western canon. Witty, salacious, and often melodramatic, Emily Dendinger's world premiere play Hideous Progeny depicts the larger than life Romantic figures as the normal teenagers they were - overeducated, egotistical, and ready to change the world. There will be a post-show discussion following the Thursday, September 2, performance.
