SATE presents Mary Shelley Monster Show
For its first production of the Season of Adaptation, SATE will remount its original play, Mary Shelley Monster Show, by Nick Otten. Mary Shelley: the impulsive teen in a runaway love triangle, the precocious novelist, the daughter of revolutionaries, the lover and wife of philosopher-poet. Mary Shelley: the grieving mother, the martyr-widow, the hack writer. Mary Shelley: the monster and monster's mother. Was Mary Shelley's most famous novel, Frankenstein really an autobiography? Is she the creator or the creature? SATE originally produced Mary Shelley Monster Show in August 2014. This remount will adapt the full scope of the play into a production that is adaptable for touring purposes. The remount will include the original actors Carl Overly, Jr., Ellie Schwetye and Rachel Tibbetts, and the original production team Kelley Weber (director), David Blake (set design), Bess Moynihan (lighting design) and Michael Perkins (video design). The original production was nominated for two St. Louis Theatre Circle Awards including "Best New Play" and "Best Design in Lighting."
