An Immersive Theatrical Experience adapted from Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein". Explore the world of a monster...
The BEING is an exciting new experience in Immersive Theatre...
Adapted from May Shelley's "Frankenstein", The BEING tells the story of the Monster from a unique perspective; exploring what it is to search for love and acceptance in a world in which you are feared and hated.
The experience spans throughout the entirety of the Livingston Art Building. With many different rooms each with their own intricately designed atmospheres - the audience is invited to explore on their own. With multiple scenes happening simultaneously around them and many different items to explore and discover individual "quests", The BEING is designed to give each and every individual a unique and personalized experience.

In order for Immersive Theatre to work, the atmospheres created by each set need to be fully fleshed out. There has to be 100% suspension of disbelief at all times in order for an audience member to really become engaged with the experience at the level they need to be. This unfortunately requires a budget to be able to afford the materials we need to build the world of the play the way it demands to be done.
