This show has now finished

Lake Geneva, early summer, 1816. Genesis takes place in the living room of Diodati, Lord Byron's villa, and the bedroom of Mary and Percy Bysshe Shelley's villa. It stunningly portrays the nights of intrigue and titillation that inspired Mary Shelley to produce Frankenstein, exploring social stigmas that maintain a chokehold over human desires, even amongst the libertine upper classes. Genesis has a dark intensity that builds to a hair-raising finale, and has received critical acclaim across Canada. The Edinburgh Fringe is its UK debut.
