"Playing With Fire (After Frankenstein)" comes to Theatre In The Park

  • Theatre in The Park 107 Pullen Road Raleigh, NC, 27607 United States (map)

An exhausted and dying Victor Frankenstein has finally tracked down his Creature in the lonely, frozen tundra of the North Pole. Determined to right the wrong he has committed by, at last, destroying the malignant evil he believes he has created, Frankenstein finds that he must first deal with his own responsibility and guilt. The Creature has become a pathetic, lonely and even sensitive being who wants only to find love and that he, Frankenstein, by intruding into the very secrets of life, is truly the evil one. Ultimately the exchange between them 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?" It is a question the exhausted Frankenstein cannot answer.

The production will run for 3 weekends from Sept. 22 to October 8th.

Tickets are $24 for Adults; $18 for Seniors, Students & Military. Group discounts available.
