By Helen Edmundson. Directed by Peter Leslie Wild.
In 1814 the teenage Mary Godwin meets the radical Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley for the first time. Their love is instant, passionate and irreversible. In the face of parental opposition and social scandal they elope to Europe in search of personal and artistic freedom. Helen Edmundson’s compelling play charts the emotional fallout of this legendary affair and the emergence of Mary as the brilliant author of Frankenstein.
