Recent Productions Frankenstein in Bath

Celebrate the 200th anniversary of FRANKENSTEIN’s birth with an atmospheric, theatrical walking tour of Bath. Show Of Strength Theatre Company reveal the city’s forgotten role in shaping Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece.

The summer of 1816 was extraordinary for many reasons, not least the sequence of events that unfolded while Mary Shelley completed her first draft of FRANKENSTEIN – in Bath. Revealing the dramas and scandals underlying the creation of the novel, the tour takes visitors on an adventure, retracing Mary Shelley’s footsteps and exploring the extraordinary and unmarked locations where she lived – and wrote her story.

Running nightly from the 16th June to the 30th September 2016, brave explorers will delve into a series of real life disasters that unfolded during Mary’s time in the city. Discover the real reason Mary Shelley came to Bath, and the secrets she and her infamous companions were desperate to hide.

  • Tours nightly: 16th June – 30th September 2016 7.30 pm
  • The Walk: Starts and Ends at Rebecca’s Fountain, Bath Abbey
  • The Route: About 1 mile (75 mins) — all on the flat, with frequent pauses!
  • Tickets: £8 cash only. No advance booking
