Join Northern Arizona University on Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 6-8 p.m. for a night of discussion surrounding the fictional character Frankenstein. "In the Shadow of the Monster: Cultural History of Frankenstein" will bring disciplines from across campus to discuss how the revolutionary book impacts the way we see the world then and now. 

Joining the discussion will be Kurt Lancaster, Creative Media and Film; Alice Gibb, Biological Sciences; Julie Piering, Philosophy; Donelle Ruwe, English; Christina Gutierrez-Dennehy, director/Theatre History; Ben Alexander, lighting/media/sound designer and Paige Adams, assistant lighting designer. 

The event will also include a special preview of NAU Theatre's upcoming production of "Playing with Fire: After Frankenstein," a retelling of the famed Mary Shelly book. Written by Barbara Field, "Playing with Fire" begins where Shelly’s novel leaves off, in the frozen tundra of the North Pole. The NAU Theatre show will premiere Nov. 8 and continue through Nov. 17. More information at nau.edu/cto.

"In the Shadow of the Monster" discussion will be held at the NAU Department of Theatre, 1115 S. Knoles Dr. For more visit https://www.facebook.com/events/nau-department-of-theatre/cultural-history-discussion-frankenstein/677640826078717/
