Frankenstein, 1945 follows Victor Frankenstein, a doctor who conducted medical research in a concentration camp under a Nazi neurosurgeon. Horrified by what he saw, Victor raises the dead with the techniques he learned. Inspired by Mary Shelley’s famous novel and incorporating audio-visual design installations in an homage to film noir, this new play will be a chilling addition to your October theatre schedule.

Set in modern day Vancouver, Three Stories Up follows a transit officer who discovers her husband’s body. He was a high ranking detective, and now she must find his informant to solve his murder. This show is sure to be an interesting theatre adventure, it take place in total darkness! Listen as Alley Theatre’s artistic director Marisa Smith talks about it on Roundhouse Radio.

The City and the City

Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Besźel Extreme Crime Squad is plunged into a perilous investigation when a young woman is murdered in The City and the City. Based on the award winning novel by British author China Miéville, the story takes place in two “split” cities. Conditioned from birth, the citizens in these overlapping cities must unsee one another, and transgressors are disappeared by an invisible police force known only as Breach. On January 24 to February 5 it will also be part of the 2017 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
