presented by SKINT PRODUCTIONS
After a five year hiatus, Manchester theatre company Skint productions are re-ignited, refreshed and reformed, now presenting a new play by Skint's creative director Karlton Parris, set upon the very eve of Mary Shelley's death, the iconic author of Frankenstein.
In the final hours of this extraordinary woman's life, she is in the grip of madness with visitations from the dead, husband Percy Shelley, their lover, Lord Byron poet John Keats and arch literary rival John William Polidori, author of the first know vampire fiction, whilst recalling her warm affection for step sister Claire Clairmont. Most heartbreaking of all, she sees herself as the young girl who penned the world's most read gothic horror novel and, in a truly scary twist, the monster she created. Expect tension galore in this darkly brooding, delightfully twisted, surprisingly funny, Victorian penny dreadful.
Beautiful Monster arrives at the Daneside Theatre for one night only en-route to opening in New York in September.

A former secretary, newly appointed as a scriptwriter for propaganda films, joins the cast and crew of a major production while the Blitz rages around them.
Catrin Cole (Arterton) is summoned to an interview at the Ministry of Information, where she is taken on to write script for short information films. Her husband Ellis Cole (Jack Huston) is a war artist, unable to get an exhibition and exempted from the call-up due to a Spanish Civil War leg wound - he is initially accepting of her job but when she becomes the only wage earner he begins to feel threatened and plans to send her back home to Wales, on the pretence of keeping her safe from the London Blitz.

Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.
The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre near the leisure centre. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows. The original theatre built in the 1980s has been extended. The extension has rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.
These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows. pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have during our season something to all tastes.
