January 11th through January 20th
By Samantha Noble
Science and song intersect in a world-premiere drama set both on the boats of the infamous lost Franklin expedition, and amongst a crew of graduate students on their last-ditch expedition to discover what really happened. A singer-songwriter with deep ties to the arctic and its people strums her way onto the ship and into the lives of the scientists, upturning everything. In this layered mystery, will a chord change or a change of direction be the source of the answers?
Relatable: If you liked The Blue Bear, An Illiad, or The Arsonists, you’ll love Franklin.
Franklin is presented by Perseverance Theatre.
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.

Assistive Listening Devices - Sound from the stage is broadcast directly to you by our in-house listening system (Listen Technologies LR-52000-072). This system has a standard 3.5mm output jack, so you can use your own headset or one of our stereo headsets. A limited number of T-coil compatible loop lanyards are also available. Listening devices are kept at the House Manager's station in the lobby prior to and during performances. This service is free of charge, however a deposit or ID is required.
