Catch the comical creation of Miracle Theatre in Torrington this Friday and Saturday.

UNREQUITED love, confused monsters and science gone mad comes to The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington this Friday and Saturday with a comical take on Frankenstein.

Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre presents the ultimate monster mash-up, with a world where the rich and famous have paid huge sums to be preserved at the Eternalife cryonics facility.

When the power is cut off, Frank races against time to construct a superhuman that can carry the genes of the rich and famous into the future.

But soon, feared by its creator, shunned by the world, the monster takes revenge. It craves the one thing it can never have...

As with past surreal and comical Miracle shows, The Revenge of Rumpelstiltskin and Aladdin, audiences will enjoy backstage glimpses of the intrepid players.

Not to mention foot-tapping songs, dazzling dance routines, eye-watering comedy and a jolly good fright.

The show is on Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm Saturday matinee too. For tickets and information, call the box office on 01805 624624.
