Frankenstein is one of the most famous horror stories. But what is the story of the woman who wrote it?
Mary Shelley - the daughter of the first feminist, and a political philosopher - is destined to become a free-thinker and terrific creative force in the male-dominated society of the 1800's. The play centres on 16-year-old Mary as she meets charismatic poet Shelley – and from there covers two momentous years in Mary’s early life. It follows her tempestuous relationships with her father and step-sisters, and her experiences in a war-ravaged Europe. Above all, this is a love story, and an account of the the creation of the darkest literary character of all time. Do not miss this unique production!

Inspector Drake and the Time Machine
by David Tristram
Inspector Drake and the Time Machine. He’s back!!! After the hilarious “Inspector Drake and the Black Widow”, performed back in 2013, Inspector Drake and his hapless sidekick return to investigate the mysterious case of a missing professor. His dead body is found floating weightlessly in the study, his daughter has vanished, and everything points to the mysterious Time Machine. Can the intrepid Inspector Drake, ably hampered by Sergeant Plod, solve the crime of the century? The 30th century that is? Fasten your seat belts for a comedy that’s way ahead of its time!
As with all Bishopstoke Players’ productions, proceeds will be donated to the charity Action for Children. The running time for this production is expected to be approximately 1 hour 30 minutes including interval.
This amateur production of “Inspector Drake and the Time Machine” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.
