What makes a monster? Big Brum is touring ‘Frankenstein’ into secondary schools this February and March. The play is suitable for audiences of up to 180 young people and can be performed up to twice a day in each school. Our version of the classic story is rich in imagery that illuminates the themes at its heart, such as identity, what makes us human, good and evil, love and hate, knowledge and ethics, responsibility and power, justice and prejudice.
Big Brum's Frankenstein will provide teachers with a creative stimulus for delivery across the curriculum:
Drama: World-class theatre for young people, ideal for the study of a live production, or for Drama and Performing Arts students working on Theatre in Education, playwriting or devising from a script.
English: A powerful exploration of Frankenstein and its themes, especially for those using the classic story as an English Literary Heritage Text at GCSE, as a stimulus for speaking and listening assessments or genre-based activity in both GCSE and A Level English Language and Literature.
Citizenship and PHSE: A creative framework for young people exploring issues of concern to them, including identity, responsibility, social justice, and rights, providing space for meaningful dialogue and reflecting on values, choices and actions.
Religious Studies: A dynamic approach to the study of identity, ethics, and philosophy, opening the concepts of prejudice, good and evil, knowledge and ignorance, and encouraging students to explore the question ‘What makes us human?’
