ALL THE MONSTERS: A Tale of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
“I had worked for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body. . . I had desired it with an ardour that far exceeded moderation; but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
The Bush School Drama Department presents: ALL THE MONSTERS A Tale of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Written and adapted by Joanne Keegan
Some call it the first horror novel. Others have deemed it the earliest science fiction. All have agreed that it is evocative and terrifying. 200 years ago Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking novel Frankenstein was first published, and it has lived on in the fearful imaginations of readers since that day. “All the Monsters” is a play that explores not just the chilling tale of a man willing to give up everything to create life; but also the experiences of the Mary Shelley, the woman who gave birth to this truly unmatched literary masterpiece.
This play is most appropriate for ages 13 and up
