To mark the birthday of Mary Shelley’s birthday, the cast of a new UK theatre tour of Frankenstein have been photographed to create haunting imagery.
The images were taken aboard the RRS Discovery in Dundee, where it is believed a young Mary Shelley discovered her talents for writing in 1812.
Born August 30, 1797, the Frankenstein author makes reference to Scottish locations a number of times in the book, including Perth and the Orkney Islands.
The images show Scottish screen actress Eilidh Loan depicting Mary Shelley with Victor Frankenstein played by English actor Ben Castle-Gibb.
Both are performing in the new production of Frankenstein.
Adapted by award-winning writer Rona Munro, Frankenstein opens in Perth Theatre on September 5 and will tour to a number of UK venues throughout 2019 and 2020.
It tells the tale of a young scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who breathes life into a gruesome body.
Banished into an indifferent world, Frankenstein’s creature desperately seeks out his true identity, but the agony of rejection and a broken promise push him into darkness.
Dangerous and vengeful, the creature threatens to obliterate Frankenstein and everyone he loves, in a ferocious and bloodthirsty hunt for his maker.
