About Creating Monsters

Synopsis: It is 1816, the Year without a Summer, and the greatest ghost story of all time is about to begin. But in order for that to happen, Mary must work through her self-doubts of womanhood, her place as a writer, her conflict with her dead mother, and Claire, always Claire there in her life, not to mention Percy, the ultimate bad boy Byron, and the boyish advances of Dr. John Polidori. Tucked away in Byron's villa in Switzerland, these five people are present at the inception of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein.

BRINGING NEW WORKS TO LIFE

LAB Theater Project is a non-profit 501(c)3 production company focused on producing new works in the Tampa Bay Community. Our belief in a "playwright first" focus is resolute and a core value of the company. Along with a focus on developing new works, we also focus on training new theater artists to join our growing community. 

‚Äč

We only produce works from emerging playwrights and develop, through education, new artists (Actors, Directors, Stage Managers, and Designers) for the continued growth of live theater artistry. 

We currently produce four new plays per year, often utilizing students in aspects of the production; thereby, giving students the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned while working side by side with established professionals in the community as well as enriching the collaborative creative process of the playwright.

Our Mandate: 

  • Bring the Playwright's vision to life.
  • Grow as artists.
  • Develop new theater artist: Actors, Directors, Designers, & Stage Managers.
  • Build a core of artists who desire a life-long practice of theatrical artistry.
