No mere creature feature, Dear’s stage version of the Shelley tale is a horror story, but it is about the horror that is inflected on the psyche of a neglected, rejected, alienated being—a sentient being—and the toll that such cruelty extracts from the abused being and that being’s reaction the insensitivity of others to his outlier appearance.
