Shuttered industrial space becomes a public stage
The Frank Theatre Company is injecting new life into the Pillsbury "A" Mill's machine shop when it stages a piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan Lori-Parks this month.
The drafty, airy machine shop, 300 2nd St. SE, once housed manufacturing tools and other equipment for the old flour mill on the East Bank. The space will be transformed into a squatter's village for the theater company's adaptation of Lori-Parks' play, "F**king A."
