The Gravedigger

A Frankenstein Story

A World Premiere by Joseph Zettelmaier

Directed by John Lepard
September 25 – November 2, 2014

Set in the late 1700s, in one of Bavaria’s forgotten cemeteries, a lone gravedigger finds a hideously scarred man hiding in a freshly dug grave. Thus begins a journey of discovery and friendship, leading to a crossroads where both men face their shared past. From the writer of Ebenezer, And The Creek Don’t Rise, and It Came From Mars, comes a seasonally haunting tale of pursuing the monster within.
