Second Stage Showcase Series Production – Limited Run
A play by Robert Weibezahl
Directed by Jerry Miller
Mary Shelley and the Curse of Creation is an atmospheric historical drama that delves into the intimate life of Mary Shelley, he writer of "Franekstein." It is a story about Mary herself....not an adaptation of "Frankenstein," but rather the story of how this literary genius came to write it. Mary Shelley was only eighteen years old when she first "gave birth" to her classic story and the creature at the heart of it. The story begins in 1831 as a publisher asks Mary tol write a new introduction to a new edition of "Frankenstein." As the action unfolds, the play re-imagines this incredible true story as the older Mary looks back on her life and is visited by the ghosts of memory.
