The Bowlus Fine Arts Center will cap the ongoing Iola Reads campaign Saturday with a retelling of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.”

Years ahead of its time, the story has since become the inspiration for countless film and stage adaptations. Frankenstein is a living, breathing, gruesome outcome of scientific discovery. The piece raises an important universal question about the nature of innovation — just because it can be done, should it be done?

The story follows Victor Frankenstein, a Swiss scientist intent on creating an artificial human. He succeeds, but also must deal with the consequences.
