Over 200 years since the publication of ‘Frankenstein’, The Occasion Theatre Company is delighted to present a new production drawing inspiration from Mary Shelley’s extraordinary life.
Incorporating elements of music hall, melodrama, horror and teenage rebellion with a pulsing, contemporary cinematic score, The Monster and Mary Shelley is a celebration of one of literature’s most influential talents and an atmospheric, moving, and at times darkly comic exploration of the Gothic Girl who electrified the world.
Atmospheric, moving and at times darkly comic with a pulsing, cinematic score, The Monster and Mary Shelley is a contemporary voyage into the life of Mary Shelley – the Gothic Girl who electrified the world. Presented by The Occasion Theatre.
