A storyteller, accompanied by a live musician, unravels Mary Shelley’s iconic 200-year-old science fiction novel as a haunting and heartbreaking cautionary tale like none other. That this tale is as important today as it was then, speaks to the human condition. “We tell stories because they teach us we’re not alone in our misery, or our fear – or in our joy. And while this story is fictional, it comes from a place of real pain, real loneliness, and real confusion over what it means to be alive.”
