The Occasion Theatre presents
The Monster & Mary Shelley
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.

A confident, savvy, dark, and oddly poignant gem of a show - Loren Noveck, nytheatre.com
