Blood and Ice
Liz Lochhead – Scots Makar, or the National Poet for Scotland, from 2011 to 2016 – tells the tale of the creation of the story of Frankenstein. Through Mary Shelley’s flashbacks we see the eerie similarities between the story of Frankenstein and her own life.
This beautifully written play gives an interesting insight into the lives of Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, and covers philosophical and political issues that are almost as topical now as they were back in the 19th Century.
Come and watch another side to Frankenstein in its 200th year!
