...previously known as The Occasional Cabaret.
An outlandish trip through the mind of one of English literature’s most influential imaginations.
In April 2016 we began development of a new small scale touring show based on the life and work of Mary Shelley, particularly with regard to Frankenstein. Working in collaboration with playwright Stewart Ennis, musician Richard Williams and designer Ali Maclaurin, with Pete directing and Catherine performing The Occasion presented work in progress showings at The Roxy, Edinburgh and the Tron, Glasgow in July 2016.
