BAT Script Club – July 2018 @ Merrill Gardens - Burien
Jul 19 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Marriage and friendship are gently explored in Dinner with Friends, a Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1998. Through humor and intelligent dialogue, the story unfolds.

The play looks at the relationship between two married couples: food writers Gabe and Karen, whose marrige appears to be doing well, and artist Beth and her husband lawyer Tom whose marriage, we learn is breaking up.

BAT Script Club – September @ Merrill Gardens - Burien
Sep 20 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

The club will be discussing Dr. Frankenstein by Selma Dimitrijevic. Because there is no August meeting of the script club the Dr. Frankenstein script will be made available at the July meeting. If you missed that and want a copy of the script please email [email protected] and make arrangments for a script.

The year is 1831: debarred from attending university in England, Dr. Victoria Frankenstein (yes, you read that right) travels to Ingolstadt, where women are permitted to study medicine and there seems to be a ready supply of disinterred cadavers, no questions asked.

Mary Shelley’s novel has been so often adapted, filmed and parodied there can’t be many interpretative avenues left to explore. But Selma Dimitrijevic’s new version is, to my knowledge, the first to change the gender of the central character. In certain respects, it seems an obvious intervention, given that the novel had a female creator. But it profoundly alters the trajectory of a book in which women are relegated to submissive, supporting roles.

Dr. Frankenstein – by Selma Dimitrijevic @ Burien Actors Theatre
Oct 5 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This is not your father’s Frankenstein. In this startlingly fresh, lyrical and haunting contemporary adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Dr. Frankenstein is reimagined as a woman. Victoria Frankenstein and her articulate Creature tell a thought-provoking story that follows Mary Shelley’s book more closely than other productions, but with wonderful new twists and an exploration of what happens when we don’t try to understand “the other”—and what happens when we do. A Northwest premiere.
