“The Frankenstein Summer” May 11 – May 19, 2012

frankenstein large1A dark and stormy night, a remote castle set above a lake, and a group of expatriate English literati. These elements brought forth the classic horror story, “Frankenstein”. Based on historical fact, Catherine Bush’s drama of conflicting personalities, fervors and talents provides an engrossing and involving evening of theatre. The poets Lord Byron and Percy Byshe Shelley spar with words while the novelist, Mary Wollstonecaraft and her half-sister, and Byron’s erstwhile lover, Claire Claremont, vie for their hearts. Byron’s personal physician, John Polidori, and Fletcher, the good and faithful butler are there to experience the emotional fireworks. You should be, too!
