The play, which kicks offCohesion Theatre Companys fifth season, transforms the classic horror tale from a story about an obsessive scientist and his creation, to a psychologically nuanced drama about a grieving woman trying to reinvent her father.

Directed by Melissa LaMartina, Frankenstein continues at the Cohesion Theatre Company until  Sunday, March 10.  All remaining performances are sold out, but you can check on ticket availabilities here.
