Presumption, or the Fate of Frankenstien (sic) [Frankenstein.]
Theatre Royal, Edinburgh,, 1828. Frankenstien [sic] by Mr Pritchard – De Lacey by Mr Felton – Clerval by Mr Montague Stanley – Fritz by Mr MacKay ... The Monster by T. P. Cooke ... Playbill, approx. 10.5 x 8 inches. Mounted, glazed and framed. An early 19th-century playbill advertising the performance of Frankenstein together with three other plays at the Theatre Royal in Edinburgh, 31 March 1828. This first adaptation of Frankenstein was a three-act opera by R. B. Peake. It featured an inarticulate monster and an assistant named Fritz, and included the line "It lives! It lives." When Mary returned to England and saw the play, she commented that she was "much amused and it appeared to excite a breathless eagerness in the audience" (Donald F. Glut, The Frankenstein Legend, 32).
