Rewriting Frankenstein

Pick one of the following scenes from the play. Think about how the situation affected the Monster. Think about how if the scene unfolded differently, the Monster may have changed. Rewrite one of the following to show how they would have impacted the Monster and his choices in life if the situation had been different. 1. 2. 3. 4. When Frankenstein sees the monster for the first time and his reaction is to run away When the monster is in a town, where dogs and towns people are after him When Felix shoots the monster When the monster kills William

Your scene should have between 2-4 characters. 1 or 2 of these characters may be your own characters (not from the play). Your scene will have two parts: 1. What happens to the monster (the situation) 2. His choices as a result (the impact) Which scene will you rewrite? What is the situation in the scene? What do others do to the Monster? Doctor Frankenstein originally left the monster.other people are rude to the monster.

How does this affect the Monster? What impact does it have on his life? What choices does he make as a result? Just before William was killed the monster remembered his creator just as William mentioned his brothers name.

How will you change the situation? How might things happen differently during the scene?In this version Doctor Frankenstein tries to care for the monster but the monster does not know better and breaks out of the castle and accidently kills a villager

How will this affect the Monster? What impact will it have on his life? What choices will he make as a result? The villagers threaten William and Elizabeth so the doctor saves his creation but sadly dies.

Rewrite the scene using your ideas from the purple boxes above. Your scene should: Include A Note On Staging refer to page 6 in the Frankenstein play o Explain the set design o Explain the costumes and props o Explain lighting, sound, and special effects Include a paragraph to explain your choices for your Note On Staging Include descriptions of the characters refer to page 8 in the Frankenstein play o List each character and give a short (2-3 sentences) description of his/her appearance and personality Include stage directions (in italics) to indicate how the characters move and how they speak In your scene, include dialogue that will move the plot along and show how the new situation unfolds and how it impacts the Monsters life

The characters The monster gruesome looking with only bloody clothing at the begging(flashback) The doctor aka Frankenstein cares about the monster wears only old time clothes(death) Jack the giant tyrant as big as the monster he leads the villagers and attacks with his pistol and strength(flashback)(end) William is Frankensteins sick brother he has normal clothes(flashback) Villagers (mentioned) Elizabeth (mentioned) The narrator tells the story. I recreated the monsters non abusive life because imagine if William never was killed or the monster never was abused. The monster in the end reads the formula after defeating his match Jack kills who the monsters so called father. Also I recreated the doctors house instead of in the book it was an old dark house with a lab.
