Mary Shelley free pdf This title presents the astonishing tale of Mary Shelley - and how she came to write one of the greatest stories ever told, aged just 19. This powerful new play explores Shelley's remarkable life: her controversial philosopher father, her scandalous elopement aged 16 and how she wrote a novel, so radical in its ideology, that in 1817 she changed the literary landscape forever. This title comes from the award-winning writer Helen Edmundson whose ground breaking adaptations ("Coram Boy", "Swallows and Amazons") have inspired generations of theatre makers.
