A new adaptation of the classic story about a monster stitched together from the dead that asks us to consider the true nature of evil

The new work created by Naoyuki Miura—who has made a mark not just in the theatre but also in the field of movie and drama scenarios—is the Lolo production of Frankenstein. What is physical and mental corruption and decay? A scientific genius patches together dead bodies and a monster is born—but is that monster really “evil”? This play is sure to open up serious new ground for Lolo, which until now has created works that mix and sample elements from pop culture.

Naoyuki Miura

Lolo theatre company leader Naoyuki Miura is a playwright and director. He launched Lolo as its director in 2009. Since then he has created plays depicting out-of-the-ordinary “boy-meets-girl” encounters, looking at familiar relationships like “family” and “romantic partners” in a new light. His creative world, which draws on countless pop culture elements from all times and places, is both unheard-of and emotional, and his work is popular not only with theatre enthusiasts but with men and women of all ages and interests. Miura’s wide-ranging activities transcend the bounds of theatre to include writing TV drama scripts, directing music videos and teaching workshops. His play Handsome na Daigo was shortlisted for the 60th Kishida Prize for Drama. He received the 16th Confidence Awards Drama Script Award for his scenario for the NHK TV drama Fujoshi, Ukkari Gei ni Kokuru (2019).
