In the latest episode of the Believe to See Podcast, we talk with the Rabbit Room's Pete (A.S.) Peterson on his upcoming stage adaption of the classic novel, and the forgotten themes behind the monster. There's the science vs. morality angle that most adaptations focus on, but Mary Shelley worked in much more rich theological dynamics about our relationship with our own Creator. We so enjoyed having Pete on the show!
