Welcome My Son is a unique interpretation of Frankenstein; as told through the monsters'
eyes. The piece explores themes of isolation, loneliness, conformity and prejudice, themes
that are just as culturally and politically relevant as they were 200 years ago.
Seamlessly melding the disciplines of Chinese Pole and Physical Theatre with storytelling
in this exciting rendition of the classic story, Phil explores the Mary Shelley Classic in a
new an exciting way, adding tangible depth and contemporary relevance to the Monster's
situation and abandonment by his father. The development & tour have been supported by Creative Scotland.
