Dr Frankenstein, a reclusive scientist increasingly obsessed with his unusual experiments, dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster out of lifeless body parts. When a criminal's brain is inadvertently transplanted inside the creature with potentially dangerous effects, its creators decide that it must be destroyed.

Poet Fiona Sampson, who has recently published a book on Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley, will be speaking at a Lewes Literary Society event on 10 March at the All Saints Centre, Lewes.
