Genesis: The Mary Shelley Play presented by Artist Collective Theatre and Attic Players

September 21, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - September 30, 2017 @ 10:30 pm MDT

$19.95 – $24.95
Genesis: The Mary Shelley Play first premiered at Theatre Calgary in 1978. The production has been performed through the USA with rave reviews. ACT and Attic chose to partner to produce the production on the upcoming 200th anniversary of when Mary Shelley started writing the Famous novel.
Lake Geneva, early summer, 1816. GENESIS takes place in the living room of Diodati, Byron’s villa, and the bedroom of Mary and Shelley’s villa, now named the Maison Chapuis, which was located up the hillside from Diodati. It stunningly portrays the nights of intrigue and titillation between Lord Byron (Owen Bishop), Mary (Danielle Larose) & Percy Shelley (Benjamin Blyth), Dr. Polidori (Ben Jacobs), and Claire Clairmont (Kaleigh Richards) inspiring Mary Shelley to produce one of the most celebrated works of horror literature- FRANKENSTEIN. GENESIS has a dark intensity that not only builds to a hair-raising finale, but pays off intellectually as we see the idea for Frankenstein get patched together in Mary’s mind.
Show times are Tuesday to Saturday at 7:30 pm. Matinee performances will be offered on Saturdays and Sunday at 2pm. Tickets are $24.95 with a student/senior price of $19.95.
Tuesday afternoon show and will feature a special Talk-Back event with the Playwright after the show.
