The Monster and Mary Shelley (The Occasion Theatre)

The Monster and Mary Shelley (The Occasion Theatre)

Over 200 years since the publication of Frankenstein, this new production draws 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.

May (Wyldwood Arts)

May (Wyldwood Arts)

Using original letters and extracts this one-woman show is based on the life of ‘the cripple suffragette' May Billinghurst, whose story has been widely ignored by the history books. An exploration of the constricts facing women, the oppression of LGBTQI+ individuals and the restricted lives of disabled people, in the claustrophobic Edwardian era. Today, in a society where many continue to fight for their voices to be heard, this show returns to her story and asks - how far have we come in 100 years? Followed by a Q+A session with writer, actor and activist Phoebe Kemp.

Enter the Dragons (A&E Theatre)

Enter the Dragons (A&E Theatre)

A riotous, surreal odyssey which explodes the myths about getting older. Dooley and Edwards present a comedic call to arms, marrying a wry exploration of the trials and tribulations of ageing with a delightfully dark surrealism as our protagonist embarks on a quest to halt the ageing process - or at least re-brand it.  A knock-out combination of joy and dissent for anyone considering ageing.
