FRANKENSTEIN: DAWN OF A MONSTER by David Emerson Toney.  Directed by Leslie Kobylinski.  Featuring: Allyson Currin, Sun King Davis, Shannon Dorsey, Ray Ficca, Rick Foucheux, David Bryan Jackson, Stan Kang, Liz Mamana, and Chris Stezin.

"I will have love."  This new dramatic interpretation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" fuses events from Shelley's life with scenes inspired by her novel. Betrayal and anger set Shelley and The Monster on a violent path through 19th century London as their worlds collide and shatter into violence. Humorous and tragic, David Emerson Toney's FRANKENSTEIN: DAWN OF A MONSTER chronicles Mary Shelley's triumph over self-destruction.
