What happens when a monster appears on the streets of Singapore? Will people panic? Will people run away? Will people stand together and fight the monster?

And what happens when the streets of Singapore stand firm against this monster that they see? Will the monster run away? Will the monster die at the hands of the people? Or will the monster find a way to fit in?

FRANK is a modern-day parable, using the Frankenstein figure to explore how we relate to, treat, and even demonize the Other in our society. Prejudice, misunderstandings, and discrimination are common themes revolving the Other, but how are they propagated through the institutions in our society? An original Singaporean spin on a classic Gothic horror tale, FRANK employs an ensemble approach to discuss these ever pertinent interpersonal issues within our increasingly diverse homeland.

*Original script and soundtracks by USP Productions.
