Frankenstein-Stop Action Shelley




Exclusive one-night-only collaboration between the Southwest Shakespeare Company and ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination.

Key scenes from the world premiere stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s gothic novel are performed. The action of the play is stopped to break down the themes, history, references and nuances of both the script and the book from which it was adapted.
The evening features:
  • David Guston, Director of the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, and editor of the new annotated edition of the novel written for its Bicentennial
  • Patrick Walsh, Senior Associate Artistic Director of the Southwest Shakespeare Company and director of the stage adaptation
  • Quinn Mattfeld, Producing Artistic Director of Southwest Shakespeare Company and the adaptation’s playwright.
  • Q&A following performance – audience participation highly encouraged.
