by Different Theatre

theatre, spoken-word-and-live-literature

Adapted from Mary Shelley’s novel The Last Man, this is a poignant and hugely relevant story set in the 21st century following a pandemic.

about the production

Set in a 21st century world troubled by deadly plague, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s 1826 novel The Last Man is poignant story and hugely relevant today. Written after the death of her husband and children, it expresses Mary’s own sense of loss and isolation, and features characters based on Mary and her friends. This one-woman adaptation delves into the biographical elements of the story. It draws on Shelley’s graphic depiction of a world wracked by pandemic and her warnings of the dangers of human arrogance, especially in relationship with nature. By award-winning writer Sam Chittenden. Featuring Amy Kidd.
