Shared Experience theatre company brings to stage the life of Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein and political radical.

Frankenstein, which she wrote aged 21, was created a sensation when it was published anonymously in 1818.

The show is written by award winning playwright Helen Edmundson who specialises in adapting literature for the stage.

It looks at Mary Shelley’s relationship with the liberal political philosopher William Goodwin, her father.
