The Goose and the Crow
Free for ticket holders
The Goose and the Crow flew out of a very old suitcase purchased by a collector from a dusty antiques market. Look for them dressed in clothes dating back to 1870 when they first made their mark in music halls across the land as they entertain you before tonight’s performances.
The Goose and the Crow are Louisa Revolta and Steve Christie from The Spitfire Sisters.
The Monster and Mary Shelley
Tickets: £12.50, £11.50 concessions
An atmospheric and moving exploration of the extraordinary life of Mary Shelley.
1816: the year without a summer.
On yet another sunless day at their villa in Switzerland, Lord Byron challenges his guests Percy and Mary Shelley to ‘each write a ghost story’. Two days later Mary, aged 18, and having recently watched her premature baby die, has a ‘waking dream’ and begins to write a story that will haunt and define her for the rest of her life.
Over 200 years since the publication of ‘Frankenstein’ this new production draws inspiration from Mary Shelley’s extraordinary life.
Incorporating elements of music hall, melodrama, horror and teenage rebellion with a pulsing, contemporary cinematic score, The Monster and Mary Shelley is a celebration of one of literature’s most influential talents and an atmospheric, moving and at times darkly comic exploration of the Gothic Girl who electrified the world.
Presented by The Occasion, a Glasgow based performance company dedicated to producing dynamic and exciting original theatre and innovative community projects.
