1826 – Henry Milner’s Frankenstein; or, the Man and the Monster!



Three years after Richard Brinsley Peake’s Presumption, Henry M. Milner wrote a play that might be the greatest stage adaptation of Frankenstein in the entire nineteenth century. And he accomplished it by ignoring virtually everything that Peake had done – and virtually everything that Mary Shelley had done.
