Regular price $14.00
Image: Copyscript

Mary Shelley is entranced by ghost tales and, in her own imagination, devises mystery and terror that affects them all. "The Power Baldridge evoked in the scenes of tension and love between Shelley and his wife, the macabre portrait she painted of Lord Byron and excellent characterizations of their hangers-on Polidori and Claire, contributed to the drama's popular and critical success." Eric Dawson, Performing Arts
