Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley

Tristan Bates Theatre · 18 SEP - 21 SEP

Part of Embrace Festival of new musical theatre by Goldsmiths University


An Old Story, A New Musical​​​​​​​

You have probably heard of Frankenstein and his hideous creature, but what about the author of this gothic tale-turned myth? What about Mary Shelley, the young girl of 18 who had to make a name for herself as a writer in a world dominated by men? Have you ever wondered what led her to write such a horrific story? Behind what is known as the “first work of science fiction” is a real story – filled with joy, pain, hopes, and delusion. It is Mary’s story. And it is time for her to step out of the shadows of Frankenstein, and take the floor so she can tell Her tale. Or rather, sing it.
