An Exploration of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
This devised theatre piece looks at themes from the novel Frankenstein such as creation, culpability, loneliness, and, of course, monsters. Using text, music, dance and images, this experimental piece features local artists Nicola Bullock, Flynt Burton, Sylvia Freeman, Amanda Hahn, Carissa Johnson, Tamara Kissane, Rachel Klem, Dierdre Shipman, Laurie Siegel, and Amber Wood.

SUMMER SISTERS - Summer Sisters is a devised theatre group that is gently lead by theatre veterans Tamara Kissane and Rachel Klem. Female artists meet weekly, during the summer, to explore themes and images generated by a mother text. 2013 was Summer Sisters' first year and focused on the graphic novel Tangles: A Story About Alzheimer's, My Mother, and Me. The theatre community embraced the Summer Sisters' work, and the production earned them "Best Choreography" in The Independent Weekly's "Best of Triangle Theatre, 2013."

Common Ground is located at 4815B Hillsborough Rd., Durham, NC 27705. Admission: $15.00/ ticket. Call (919) 384-7817 for reservations, or visit
