Shared Experience

Shared Experience brings to life the astonishing tale of Mary Shelley - and how she came to write one of the greatest stories ever told, aged just 19.

This powerful new play explores Shelley's remarkable life: her controversial philosopher father, her scandalous elopement aged 16 and how she wrote a novel, so radical in its ideology, that in 1817 she changed the literary landscape forever.

Shared Experience is renowned for bringing literary classics to the stage in bold, imaginative ways. For Mary Shelley they reunite with award-winning writer Helen Edmundson whose ground breaking adaptations (Mill on the Floss, Coram Boy, Swallows and Amazons) have inspired generations of theatre makers.

Mary Shelley is directed by Polly Teale, Artistic Director of Shared Experience, who is celebrated for her potent visual and imaginative style.
