Welcome to The Occasion...

...previously known as The Occasional Cabaret.

Current productions:


THE MONSTER AND MARY SHELLEY

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.

We are now seeking to attract funding to develop the work into a full production for touring within Scotland in the autumn of 2017, and other areas of the UK in 2018. For more information on The Monster and Mary Shelley please click here.
