Synopsis

Mary Shelley: daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft; lover of Shelley; author of <i>Frankenstein</i>'

Helen Edmundson's compelling play explores a crucial episode in the early life of Mary Shelley - her meeting and scandalous elopement aged sixteen with Percy Bysshe Shelley, and its consequences for her sisters, her stepmother and above all, her troubled father, the political philosopher William Godwin.

'Gripping... without ever reducing <i>Mary Shelley</i> to an issue drama, Edmundson suggests the destructive nature of a life lived without compromise' <i>The Times</i>
