Robin Morgan:
The "otherizing" of women is the oldest oppression known to our species, and it's the model, the template, for all other oppressions.

Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley
A world premiere
written by Anne Bertram
directed by Carin Bratlie
October 26 November 17, 2007

The life of novelist Mary Shelley overlaps and intertwines with the story that made her famous, illuminating the creator and creature within us all.

"Theatre Unbound's Frankenstein Incarnate was given a sturdy turn by Laura Wiebers as philosopher William Godwin and Katie Guentzel's flickering portrayal of decadent poet Lord Byron." (Lavender)

One of the Artists of the Year: Anne Bertram. "On the adaptation end of the spectrum, Anne Bertram penned the multifaceted Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley for Theatre Unbound." (City Pages)
