Welcome My Son
About Welcome My Son

Welcome My Son is a unique interpretation of Frankenstein; as told through the monsters’ eyes. The piece explores themes of isolation, loneliness, conformity and prejudice, themes that are just as culturally and politically relevant as they were 200 years ago.

Seamlessly melding the disciplines of Chinese Pole and Physical Theatre with storytelling in this exciting rendition of the classic story, Phil explores the Mary Shelley Classic in a new and exciting way, adding tangible depth and contemporary relevance to the Monster’s situation and abandonment by his father.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Welcome My Son are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
