During a stormy summer holiday, Mary Shelley and her companions were challenged by their host Lord Byron to see who could compose the best ghost story. After a few fretful days devoid of inspiration, the tale of Frankenstein revealed itself to her in a lucid dream. Gorilla Theater presents a modern adaptation of the thriller by introducing a new character: Shelley herself appears alongside Dr. Frankenstein as they struggle to breathe life into their creations: her novel and his tragic monster.

Friday 3/7. $5-8, 7:30pm. The Directors Studio Theater, 1726 Allied St., Ste. 2B. 547-7986.
