Two hundred years ago Mary Shelly wrote Frankenstein.

Is the monster she describes still with us today?
See Joel Shatzky's The Two Marys--- about Mary Shelley and her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, a fiery proto-feminist. Frankenstein's monster remains one of the most recognized icons in horror fiction. but what or who is the monster? Germaine Greer claims: "The driving impulse of Frankenstein is a nameless female dread..."

Joel Shatzky's play examines the dread of the monster's creator, Mary Shelley and the radical artists around her.
