Matinée 20 January at 2.30pm
In 1816, the Shelleys joined Lord Byron and his mistress Claire Clairmont on the shores of Lake Geneva. Young, carefree, and in love, Mary Shelley agrees to a bet to see who in their intimate group can produce the most horrifying tale. But as the dark shadow of reality creeps ever closer, she begins to realise that the most chilling story of them all might just be her own.
Liz Lochhead explores the nature of female creativity in this dark
evocation of the romance between Mary and Percy Shelley.
