Dr. Franken has made an incredible medical discovery that changes the very nature of humanity. What if you could be brought back from the dead? Franken proves the validity of his research by going on a lengthy lecture tour showcasing a key piece of evidence: his test subject, Adam. Theirs is a fraught relationship. Did Adam want to return to life? Is the doctor using him to advance his own career? Caleb King's drama Prometheus' Dream is a modern retelling of Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein, in which fame and glory drive the quest for immortality. First Run Theatre presents Prometheus' Dream at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (January 13 to 22) at the Thomas Hunter Theater at DeSmet Jesuit High School (233 North New Ballas Road; www.firstruntheatre.com). Tickets are $10 to $15.
