* MaleFrontalNudity: The Creature is born naked and stays that way for about 20 minutes as he learns to control his own body. And he's played by BenedictCumberbatch and Creator/JonnyLeeMiller. IllBeInMyBunk. (The filmed releases have the Creature emerging in a loincloth that is pretty much his exact skin tone.)

* [[PointOfView]]: The original novel was told through Victor's eyes. Here the main focus is on the Creature; he is the first character we see and besides the brief scuffle in the lab, Victor doesn't really come into focus until the Creature makes his way to Geneva

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: Perhaps because this version is told primarily from the Creature's point of view, Victor is more of a jerk than he was in the novel, and most of his redeeming qualities are left out.

* AdaptationDistillation: The play does away with the FramingDevice from Mary Shelley's {{Literature/Frankenstein}} and focuses on the relationship between Victor and the Creature. It also keep's Victor's age correct, and like the novel, leaves how he brought the Creature to life vague. It's probably the truest adaptation of Shelley's novel. The only major thing left out besides Captain Walton is the maid the Creature
