Lacey Turner Signs Up For ‘Frankenstein Live’

Turner was very candid about her desire to ‘try new things’ once she quit the soap last year and she has previously hinted that appearing on stage would be a top priority.

The programme will be filmed at Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds and the BBC has described the it as a “bold and ambitious project which explores Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece through live drama and contemporary musicâ€?.

Little else is known about the show which will follow on Manchester Passion and Liverpool Nativity, both of which were shown live on BBC3 last year.

“The story of Frankenstein is as relevant today as it ever was,” said acting BBC Three controller Harry Lansdown. “I’m delighted to be telling its story on BBC3 through this live drama, which has a great cast and fantastically ambitious audience participation at its very heart.â€?
