Character Breakdown

Mary Greene - 22, intelligent, gifted fiction writer. Comes from a small town. Introverted and lonely, she has only one friend in life. An only child, she wants to be accepted by her peers, but knows that's unlikely. She has ambition to be recognized for her work.

Eva Warren Hollace - 50s, intelligent. Very successful novelist, but she hasn't had a successful novel for years. Steely, narcissistic and often cruel. Like Victor Frankenstein, her ambition and narcissism along with her bitterness and jealousy ultimately drive her to ruin.  Like Mary, she came from a small town and had to force her way into the literary world as a woman.

Patti Perkins - 22, Mary's best friend/roommate. Down to earth, friendly. A good friend to Mary who becomes shocked at Mary's transition to monstrousness.

Daniel Alexander - 22, smart, gifted fiction writer. Comes from a wealthy Upper East side family, but down to earth and a good guy. Neglected as an only child, and lonely, he found comfort in books and writing.

Helen Baldwin - 40-50s, Eva's editor. She has been Eva's champion, but tells her that her books are no longer any good.

Victor Frankenstein - ambitious, God complex, intelligent. He questions nature the way that he questions authority, and everything surrounding him. His ambition and God complex ultimately drive him to ruin.

Creature - equally intelligent, he questions his existence. However, as he discovers the realities of his life, he grows angry, vengeful, and hateful. He is a creature who educates himself, and tries his best to fit into society, but knows that this task is nearly impossible, and so his anger rages on.

Old Blind Man (De Lacey) - kind, welcoming, helpful. The De Lacey family members are poor peasants but loving to each other. Creature longs to be part of such a family.

Felix De Lacey - his son

Agatha De Lacey - his daughter-in-law

William - Victor's younger brother. An innocent.

Elizabeth - Victor's wife. Kind, gentle. She was orphaned as a child, but taken in by the Frankenstein family.

Chorus - Need acting as well as modern dance or movement ability. This is an important part of the show.
