Enjoy this month’s play reading of “Playing with Fire.” Adapted by Minnesota playwright Barbara Field from Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” (celebrating its 200th anniversary this year), “Playing with Fire” imagines a meeting between a dying Victor Frankenstein and his Creation in the Arctic Circle. As Frankenstein prepares to right his greatest wrong by confronting the Creature, scenes from their past are replayed and the line between good and evil is debated, revealing a powerful and agonizing question. “Playing with Fire” is a poignant thriller and an interrogation of the ethical limits of science and the human imagination. Guthrie dramaturg Jo Holcomb will assign parts.


Registration is now closed. If you are interested in being on a "sub" list for the Guthrie play-reading program, please contact Betsy Wray: betsywray@millcitycommons.org.
