From Frankenstein to The Invisible Man, James Whale directed some of the greatest movies of all time. How did a working-class boy from Dudley end up in Hollywood? An expressionist and out gay man working in the studio system at the peak of Hollywood’s golden age, his moment in the movie-land spotlight lasted little more than 10 years. Just who was James Whale? This one-person show shines a light on his life and work, examining a sense of otherness and the outsider, and how his films still resonate, 90 years on.

Age Guidance: 12+
