TALK: In Search of Mary Shelley: The Girl Who Wrote Frankenstein

Thursday 25 January

This is a talk by Fiona Sampson on her new book ‘In Search of Mary Shelley’, which marks the centenary of the publication of Frankenstein. In January, the publication is Radio 4’s Book of the Week.



Welcome – the Marine Theatre is right on the seafront in beautiful Lyme Regis. The location – with wide views of the sea and Lyme bay – is very important to the Marine’s identity, which makes it appealing to both the public and performers.

While it’s called a theatre, the offering is much broader: there’s a vibrant programme of entertainment including bands, films, comedians, plays, and community-led events.

The theatre has become recognised regionally as a vital arts centre, distinguished from others through eclectic programming. It’s a destination for performers with a national reputation. It also acts as an umbrella for events featuring local figures from the arts, as cultural practice in the community is celebrated.

We are also available to hire as a wedding venue and other events.


The theatre office is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. The Marine Theatre Bar opens an hour before each show.

You can buy tickets for our shows at anytime online (go to our What’s On page), or from the Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre on 01297 442138

 You can support the Marine Theatre by donating, becoming a TheatreFriend, joining our team of Volunteers, or by choosing the Marine as a venue for your party, wedding or meeting.
