About the Play:

Mary Shelly’s legendary masterpiece, Frankenstein, is not only a gothic tale of horror, but a cautionary tale about the dangers of excessive passion, unchecked science, and the estrangement of god and man, and playwright Barbara Field has masterfully captured each of these themes in her brilliant reinterpretation of the original
novel.

Opening amid the isolated wastelands of the Arctic Circle, Shelly’s story is revealed both in the present confrontation between Victor Frankenstein and his hideous Creature, and through a series of intimate flashbacks. Having set out to destroy the malignant atrocity he has created, Frankenstein must also face his own culpability in unleashing evil upon the world. At the same time, the Creature, bent on murderous revenge for the living hell into which his creator has cast him, reveals himself to be far more than a hideous, violent abomination – in the Creature we find a being that is not only terrifying, but all too human!

At once intellectually insightful and emotionally complex; PLAYING WITH FIRE (After Frankenstein) is a modern morality play that eloquently speaks to some of the most burning moral and ethical questions of our time!
