"Mary Shelley Monster Show at Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble. Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin won the prize, for sure, when she joined fellow writers Lord Byron, future husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and others in a ghost-story writing competition one rainy vacation in 1818. For nearly 200 years, her fans have thrilled to reading Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, including SATE performers Ellie Schwetye and Rachel Tibbetts, who with Nick Otten adapted Frankenstein into an engaging, haunting drama as electrifying as the jolts that brought The Creature to life." ~Mark Bretz, Ladue News
