Mindful Way @ NUI Galway

Considering the first stage adaptation of her novel, Mary Shelley commented, “Frankenstein had prodigious success as a appeared to excite a breathless eagerness in the audience.” The first Frankenreads NUIG event sees Mel Brooks’s comedy classic takes on the lengthy stage and film history of Frankenstein and his monster. Gene Wilder plays the grandson of the original scientist, Peter Boyle the new Monster, and Marty Feldman the brain-dropping sidekick Igor. Scientist and monster take to the stage in top hat and tails for “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, answering the novel’s eternal questions about the nature of humanity, the boundaries of scientific progress, and whether it can really be pronounced Fronkensteen. This free screening will be accompanied by some light refreshments.

Frankenreads NUIG is a branch of Frankenreads, the international celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the novel for Halloween 2018 organised by the Keats-Shelley Association of America. It is also part of the EXPLORE initiative at NUI Galway, where students and staff collaborate to deliver their innovative ideas and projects. Featuring staff and students from English, Frankenreads is also supported by the university’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Project Fund and by the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies.
