THERE’S MORE TO MARY THAN FRANKENSTEIN….


Mary Shelley spills the beans on men, monsters, motherhood, mayhem and Bournemouth


WILL Mary Shelley hold her own with Bournemouth’s answer to Alan Partridge? Or, will his crass interviewing techniques send her running?

 

WHO is the real Mary Shelley? What does she  think of her monster creation? Which scientfic discovery inspired her? How spookily gothic is Bournemouth?  Did she fancy Lord Byron?

 

COME TO THE FIRST EVER MARY SHELLEY FESTIVAL AND FIND OUT.


DID YOU KNOW?  Frankenstein’s author is buried in along with the heart of her poet husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, her mother, the pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft and her father, the philosopher and writer, William Godwin.

 

DID YOU KNOW? The plaque outside the newly restored Shelley Manor in Boscombe states that it was the home of Percy Florence Shelley, the son of Percy Bysshe Shelley. No mention is made of his mother, Mary Shelley


DID YOU KNOW? Mary Shelley wrote other books. Award winning playwright, ., is inspired by one of them in  her latest play, The End of Romance. Dont miss the rehearsed reading of a story  inspired by a tragic and visionary episode a number of years after Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein. October 2nd 7.30 pm. You saw it first in Bournemouth!

    Hoping that my dressing room is all that an international megastar like myself has come to expect. Please ensure, that there is are at least 3 bottles of champagne (mums), a dressing robe and wine gums. I am also superstitious about flowers so please keep all of these outside.

    Regards
