Description

In 1825 Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley becomes confidante to her writer friend Mary Diana Dods’ dramatic decision to pass herself as a man so that she may marry a pregnant mutual friend.

Mary Dods’ act of courage rapidly turns sour as her ‘wife’ begins to turn against her. Can their flight to Paris avert what already seems a doomed scenario? Can Mary Shelley assist and maintain the charade she herself has helped engineer?

For the first time, this true tale of 19th century cross-gendered bravery comes to life for Perth Fringe World audiences. Western Australian playwright/director Suzanne Ingelbrecht has conceived a theatrical gothic romance rich in Frankenstein imagery and high drama, perfect for our COVID-19, #Me-Too times.
