Not All A Dream

Scaled final
In the 200th anniversary year of 'Frankenstein', this new play dives into the story behind the story; how an 18 year old woman, Mary Shelley, created one of the most recognisable and horrifying figures in western culture. Join us early for a lakeside picnic, as we recreate the haunting majesty of Lake Geneva in this site-specific production.

The Story:
In June of 1816, Romantic poet Percy Shelley and his lover Mary Godwin went on holiday to Lake Geneva, to visit the infamous Lord Byron during his self-imposed exile. However, the weather proved so bad during their stay that they were often confined to the house for days at a time. Looking for ways to entertain themselves, they decided to have a game to see who could write the scariest story. It was here that Frankenstein was born.
