Mary’s Monster


    On a dark night near the end of her life, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley wrestles with ghosts: her dead children, her sister, her famous husband, her mother, and Frankenstein, her most famous creation. Death has loomed over her entire life, and now, shovel in hand, she will reckon with it, one way or another.

    A world premiere one woman show, written by and starring Maggie Lou Rader.

    10 words or less: The dead can come back; they don’t come back nice.
    Rated: PG-13.
