BARBARA FIELD'S
"PLAYING WITH FIRE (AFTER FRANKENSTEIN)"

Picking up where Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein leaves off, aging Victor Frankenstein has finally caught up with his Creature at the North Pole. He intends to kill the “monster,” but first they spend a night under the midnight sun reliving past events (played by younger counterparts) and debating the Creature’s agonized question, “Why did you make me?”

CHARACTER LIST

Frankenstein

Probably 40s-50s, dying of exposure, has pursued his Creature for years to the top of the world, still obsessively collecting data

Creature

Frankenstein’s creation, extensively self-educated, lonely, bitter, begging for answers from his maker (not the movie monster)

Victor

A memory of Frankenstein as a young man, probably 20s, obsessed with science above all, then overwhelmed with horror at what he has created

Adam

A memory of the newly made Creature, innocent until made bitter and dangerous by how he is treated

Elizabeth

A memory of Victor’s betrothed, 20s, kind, loyal, and deeply loving

Krempe

Probably 50+, Victor’s professor at Ingolstadt, eager to share in Victor’s accomplishments, but more aware of potential consequences
