The Monster & Mary Shelley

Over 200 years since the publication of ‘Frankenstein’, The Occasion is delighted to present a new production drawing inspiration from Mary Shelley’s extraordinary life.

Incorporating elements of music hall, melodrama, horror and teenage rebellion with a pulsing, contemporary cinematic score, The Monster and Mary Shelley is a celebration of one of literature’s most influential talents and an atmospheric, moving, and at times darkly comic exploration of the Gothic Girl who electrified the world.

 ★★★★ The Herald "Catherine Gillard delivers a tour de force performance as Mary...highly recommended." - ★★★★ The Reviews Hub
