Edmundson’s compelling drama deals with an episode in the early life of Mary Shelley. Exploring her meeting and elopement, aged 16, with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and the consequences for her dysfunctional family – particularly her father, radical philosopher William Godwin. The play examines key issues of early 19th century society and provides a context for her writing of the remarkable 'Frankenstein'.
