Blood and Ice
“It is easy, describe what haunts you. Frankenstein, you have thought of a story. Mary Shelley, you have seized the spark of life. Now write this.”
1816, Switzerland. Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and Claire Clairmont vacation together. A challenge is made: who can write the best horror story? As past and present intertwine, friendships fade and die, and a mysterious voice haunts the room, Mary Shelley reflects on the circumstances that led to her greatest work - Frankenstein.
Amateur production of Blood and Ice by Liz Lochhead by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
Doors open at 7:10.
Frequent mentions of death (death in childbirth, by drowning, death of child by sickness); brief drug use (opium); light intimacy (physical touch and light kissing).
The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. Assistance dogs are welcome to this event.
