Mary Shelley

A Living History

Demo Video

As Mary reveals her process as an author in creating Frankenstein, you learn how she viewed the world around her and how, in turn, the world treated her. Witness the creative process in action as Mary's imagination unfolds.  One-hour program includes a monologue in-character, followed first by a question and answer period with "Mary Shelley" and then by a question and answer period with the scholar/presenter.

Optional follow-on activities include a talk about the status of women's rights in the early to mid-nineteenth century, or a workshop on bioethics.
