The WINDOW programme and for the family

Events in the WINDOW programme (running 2 to 7 May) include:

  • Sci-fi comedy Beauty's Legacy Or The Modern Frankenstein is a part-devised, part-scripted piece created by Mark Finbow and Simon Anthony Rhoden based on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Using a strong visual style and an electronic soundtrack by pop noir soulsters Mirrors, it examines the legacy of financially obsessed societies though a story about the creation of the most beautiful, stylish and vain monster the world has ever seen.
