A boundary-smashing, 9-hour adaption of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Or is it?

Joseph Morpurgo presents his masterpiece: Outlandishly funny multimedia comedy and new voodoo from the distinguished mind of the 2015 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, three-time 2016 Chortle Award winner and BBC Radio Four star Joseph Morpurgo, featuring surreal set-pieces, vivid comic writing, subliminal pulse signals – and monsters. Following sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Soho Theatre, Hammerhead now embarks on a nationwide tour.


Hammerhead is presented as a part of PULSE Festival 2018.
