This Autumn, AUB marked the 200th anniversary of the publication of the iconic novel Frankenstein, with a whole season of productions to pay tribute to the author, Mary Shelley, receiving coverage both in local and national media.

The first plays of the series, Mary Shelley, Blood and Ice and Freakenstein, were all performed at The Shelley Theatre, a venue that was built for Mary by her son, with the later production CTRL C being performed in St. Peter’s Church, the rest place of Mary Shelley.

AUB Productions are the collaborative output of our BA (Hons) Acting, BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design and BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance students in-house studio. The performances provide the students with first-hand experience and insight into the key disciplines that make up live theatre shows.
