Three Weeks: From My Sleep With Horror (28/08/11)

Find the original article here.

Exploring the night that gave inspiration to author Mary Shelley to write the gothic classic ‘Frankenstein’, we see characters such as Percy Bysshe Shelley tell tales of the supernatural as a storm rages outside. The stories come alive as the rest of the group slot into the guises of the various beasts and ghouls and the added use of dance enhances the mystery and suspense of each mythical circumstance, as the group of bodies move to the rhythm, enraptured, animalistic and primal. It’s a shame that interesting characters such as Byron are not developed more in order to fit the tales in, but in general, this is a play with depth and full of gothic intrigue.

Paradise In The Vault, 16 – 27 Aug (not 22), 1.45pm (2.45pm), £6.00 – £8.00, fpp264.
