    Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein is one of the most known and retold stories in the world. But few know that Mary faced as much death and drama during the writing of her book as her characters do. This play tells the equally compelling true story of Frankenstein’s teenage author Mary Shelley alongside her original tale of horror. Moving back and forth between the layered worlds of the book and the world in which Mary Shelley was writing (and sometimes blending the two), Frankenstein is a dark, gothic drama about an extraordinary young woman, the strange times she lived in, and all of her many monsters.
