THEATRE: ‘The Monster & Mary Shelly’ – 9 May

Date/Time
Wednesday 09 May 2018
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

June 1816 – the ‘Year without a summer’: On yet another sun-less day at their holiday villa in Switzerland, Lord Byron challenges his guests Percy and Mary Shelley to ‘each write a ghost story’. Two days later Mary, 18 years old and having recently watched her premature baby die, has a ‘waking dream’ and begins to write a story that will haunt and define her for the rest of her life.
‘SO THIS IS WHY YOU CREATED ME? NOT TO SCARE YOUR READERS. NOT TO SCARE YOURSELF. BUT TO SCARE AWAY THE THINGS THAT REALLY FRIGHTENED YOU? SO THAT YOU CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT?’
The Monster and Mary Shelley is an atmospheric, moving, and at times darkly comic exploration of ‘fear’. Incorporating elements of music hall, melodrama, horror and teenage rebellion with a pulsing cinematic score, The Monster… explores the world of Mary Shelley – the Gothic Girl who electrified the world.
“IT WAS ON A DREARY NIGHT IN NOVEMBER, THAT I BEHELD THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF MY TOILS…” VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN
The most enduring of all horror stories.
A haunting exploration of the life of Mary Shelley, of her monster… and fear.
