Lifeline Theatre Sets 18-19 Seson

Lifeline Theatre has announced their 2018-19 season of stories brought to life from beloved classics to modern tales. This will be the final season under the leadership of artistic director Dorothy Milne.

The season opens with a world premiere adaptation of the FRANKENSTEIN, followed by an adaptation of the absurdist satire THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, and finishes off with a world premiere adaptation of Jane Austen’s EMMA.
