The Monster and Mary Shelley

About The Monster and Mary Shelley

‘So, this is why you created me? Not to scare your readers or yourself. But to scare away the things that really frightened you? So that you can sleep at night?’

June 1816 – the year without a summer. At the age of 18, having recently watched her premature baby die, Mary Shelley has a ‘waking dream’ and begins to write a story that will haunt and define her for the rest of her life.

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 contemporary cinematic score, The Monster and… explores the life of Mary Shelley – the Gothic Girl who electrified the world.

An outlandish trip through the mind of one of English literature's most influential imaginations.
