Without love, what is life?

Based on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, DAY OF WRATH is a musical with a sweeping romantic score about the human need for love and companionship. God's creation is not perfect; Man's creation is even more flawed. What is our responsibility for the consequences of our work and its effect on humanity? What is Victor Frankenstein’s responsibility to his creation, itself a living, feeling, and thinking being?

Running Time: 2 hours.
