Playing With Fire (After Frankenstein)

Written by Barbara Field; Directed by Annaliese Baker 

A brilliant scientist. An extraordinary imagination. A boundary crossed. After a terrible chain of murder and horror, both creation and creator must come face to face in a final, terrible showdown that marries past and present into one. This genderblind production finds an exhausted and dying Frankenstein finally tracking down the Creature in the lonely, frozen tundra of the North Pole. Determined to right the wrong they have committed, Frankenstein wrestles with responsibility and guilt in what becomes a confrontation between parent and child, scientist and experiment, rejection and love, and even good and evil— culminating in the Creature's agonizing question, "Why did you make me?” Fall Dance Concert:
