BAT Script Club – October 4 – evening @ Burien Library
Oct 4 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am

The first meeting of BAT’s evening script club will be discussing Dr. Frankenstein by Selma Dimitrijevic. If you want a copy of the script please email [email protected] and make arrangements 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.

BAT’s daytime script club – October 18 at Merrill Gardens – Burien @ Merrill Gardens Burien
Oct 18 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

BAT’s daytime script club will be reading Tribes by Nina Raine at its October 18, 2018, meeting. If you want a copy of the script please email [email protected] and make arrangements for a script.

Have you heard? Are you listening to me? What did you just say?

Most of us ask variations on those questions at least a dozen times a day. But it’s unlikely that they vibrate with the resonance they acquire in Nina Raine’s Tribes, a smart, lively and beautifully play that asks us to hear how we hear, in silence as well as in speech.

Billy was born deaf into a hearing family. He was raised inside its fiercely idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon. He has adapted brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways, but they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he finally understands what it means to be understood.

Tribes was nominated for both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for best play in 2013.
