Shelley’s Heart empowers you to read minds, time travel and raise the dead! This location-aware story celebrates the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein by linking 4 story-paths to locations in St. Peter’s churchyard in Bournemouth town centre, the site where Mary Shelley is buried. Debuting on the 31st of October (Halloween) 2018, this interactive, multi-media experience reimagines historical figures as modern hipsters. Each of the 4 stories traces a different path through the churchyard and focuses on a specific character, including contemporary versions of Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and John Keats, plus the ghost of Percy Shelley, a restless spirit desperate to locate his missing heart. Reality and fantasy merge as these characters confront various fears and desires manifest as Mary's most celebrated and ferocious creation, the Monster. Penned by 5-time Emmy nominee Bradford G, Shelley’s Heart combines video, audio, animation and interactive quizzes to bring these exciting, passionate and tragically flawed writers back to life.
