TALENTED young Widnes actors are staging an innovative interpretation of Mary Shelley’s 1818 Gothic masterpiece Frankenstein.

Their dramatisation entitled ‘The Modern Prometheus’ will be performed by Bankfield pupils at The Brindley studio at 8pm on Saturday, March 1.

Paul Kennedy, head of drama, said: "Over thirty pupils have worked in a professional manner to interpret the text in a complex way and perform it with creativity and intelligence.

“The hour long play will explore some of the novel's themes such as the resonsibility of parenthood, the hubris and dangers of playing God and the nature of the ousider in society."

This is the school’s 10th production at The Brindley.

They will soon start rehearsing Mamma Mia for a show in July.

Tickets priced £6/£4 concessions are available at the Brindley box office on 0151 907 8360 or online at thebrindley.org.uk or you can pay on the door.
