One of the great horror stories of all time, Mary Shelly's classic tale of gods and monsters still fascinates two hundred years after its 1818 publication! First presented at the National Theatre in London, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Dear's adaptation is highly theatrical and surprisingly relevant.
Employing striking images and beautifully poetic language, the play explores the very nature of good and evil, brought to life with thrilling and heartbreaking results.
From the Creature's first moments on stage, as he writhes naked out of an organic pod, the audience is swept into a breathtaking whirlwind of emotional storytelling through imagery and movement.
With daring and stylized staging, comes a humane, insightful retelling of the original story, focusing on the plight of the creature and his desperate journey to fit into a world that doesn't want him. A theatrical event like none other.

Diversity. Scandal. Mystery. Truth. The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson, a historical little-known chapter in Southern California history, returns in dramatic form from October 1 – 31 to kick off Island City Stage’s10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.
This gripping period drama which launched the theatre company’s award-winning run in 2012 recounts the true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap "social vagrants.” Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California. The play stars Clay Cartland as “Warren,” who originated the role in the Island City Stage production, and newcomer Alfonso Vieites as “Brown.”
Clay Cartland is a South Florida native and most recently performed in Shrekand Groundhog Day with Slow Burn Theatre at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Some of his favorite performances include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Desperate Measures, Flashdance, 1776, Peter and the Starcatcher and First Date. Clay is also a proud member of Actors Equity and a recipient of two Carbonell and four Silver Palm Awards. Clay also works as a voice-over artist and teaches improv comedy.
Alfonso Vieites is thrilled to be making his Island City Stage debut. He was last seen at The Foundry in Party! He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from Florida International University and has since continued his training with Sociedad Actoral Hispanoamericana in Doral. He’s also had the pleasure of appearing as a day player on two Telemundo shows.
