MLF: Jeanette Winterson – Frankissstein
Saturday 5 October 7.30pm
Suitable for age 14+ (advisory)
Jeanette Winterson performs a one-woman show based around her superb new novel Frankissstein. In 1816, Mary Shelley retreats to Lake Geneva to write Frankenstein, while in the present day, Dr Ry Shelley researches the effects of Artificial Intelligence. Discussing robots, sex bots and gender transition, Jeanette explores what it means to have agency over your own body and whether our preserved brains will run the future. Jeanette is the author of ten critically acclaimed novels, the memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? and several screenplays.
