Interactive Frankenstein

February 26, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for a unique immersive experience based on the story of Frankenstein as the theatre company Pure Expression makes their American debut at the DeKalb Public Library before heading to Chicago, New York, and Washington, D. C.!

Rediscover this iconic novel through the voices of Mary Shelley’s haunting characters as you journey through the library’s hidden corners. Enjoy a soundscape created by award winning musician Taz Modi and engage with extraordinary historical items that you discover for yourself as you venture from memory to memory following the ghost of Victor Frankenstein to the dramatic climax of the tale.

Shows start every 10 minutes from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Guests will be placed in pairs for the show, so groups should allow extra time for all members to complete the experience. Children 8-17 must be accompanied by an adult.

All are welcome; no prior registration required.

For additional information, please contact Emily at or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1000.
