FRANKENSTEIN LIVES 

Just in time for Halloween Frankenstein will come to life at Gordon State College’s Theatre in Douglas Jones’ adaptation with limited seating! At the tender age of eighteen, Mary Shelley wrote a story so compelling that it has never since been out of print since 1818. Surrounded by exciting breakthroughs in electricity, chemistry, magnetism and other scientific fields, she imagined a Creature pieced together from dead bodies–then brought to life, only to be shunned by its creator. FRANKENSTEIN LIVES chronicles Mary’s life leading up to the book that made her famous; the literary world that surrounded her; the contest proposed by Lord Byron that inspired her to write Frankenstein; and the startling resonances between her own life and her literary creation.  A story within a story, a lone actor portrays the obsessed poet Percy Shelley and the equally obsessed Victor Frankenstein; one actress portrays the young tormented Mary Shelley, and the equally tormented Creature.  The result is a new take on a story you only thought you knew.

THE TEMPEST

Magic! Revenge! Love! THE TEMPEST by William Shakespeare, adapted by Gordon State College’s very own Lisa Cesnik Ferguson has it all! Considered by most scholars to be the last play that Shakespeare wrote, The Tempest is a stormy tale of betrayal and forgiveness. Living on an island after being banished by his brother King Antonio. Prospero harnesses the magic of the other-worldly island, full of monsters becoming a master magician. Living with him is his daughter Miranda, a bizarre wildman Caliban, and Ariel, a sprite. Prospero wishes to seek revenge by creating a storm leading to an assassination attempt and romance. Join us for this enthralling “tragicomedy” to learn about the true meaning of justice and mercy!
