Dialogue on Drama

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2019 AT 4:20PM

Venue Matthews Theatre

Join us after the performance for an engaging moderated conversation with playwright and director David Catlin and Princeton University’s own Frankenstein expert, Professor Susan Wolfson.

David will talk about his work as an ensemble member of Chicago’s Lookingglass Theatre Company, what inspired his adaptation of the Frankenstein story, and how the Lookingglass mission and theatrical style is expressed through the play in performance. Susan will connect with the play in relation to her scholarship on the creation of Mary Shelley’s breakthrough science-fiction novel, as well as provide an overview of the history of Frankenstein on stage. David and Susan will also answer questions from the audience.

It is certain to be an illuminating event regardless of when you experience the play in performance.

No RSVP or ticket is required to attend this discussion; it is free and open to the public.
