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.

“The show is impossible to resist…..it slices down to the hidden reality of the way we live now, in a way that makes the rest of our theatrical world seem pallid.”

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman (on Apocalypse!)
