This new play explores Mary Shelley’s remarkable life – from her controversial philosopher father and her scandalous elopement, to how at the age of 19 she wrote one of the greatest stories ever told, so radical in its ideology it changed the literary landscape forever.

The pioneering theatre company Shared Experience is renowned for bringing literary classics to the stage in bold, imaginative ways including successful previous co-productions, The Caucasian Chalk Circle, War and Peace and A Passage to India. For this new play they reunite with award-winning writer Helen Edmundson whose groundbreaking adaptations include War and Peace , Coram Boy , Swallows and Amazons and new play The Heresy of Love.
