    • Invulnerable Nothings: Bloody Poetry and (un)Staged Readings

      This romantic (ahem, Romantic) project of theatrical conjuring concerns "the intersecting historical dramas, both literary and personal, of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, and Claire Clairmont from the summer of 1816 until Shelley’s death in the summer of 1822." And that's evoked via performances of Howard Brenton's Bloody Poetry play about the muse-ridden company, and by readings from Frankenstein, Prometheus Unbound, and Cain. Bonus: live music. Bloody Poetry: Fri., April 21, 8pm; Sun.-Mon., April 23-24, 8pm; Wed.-Sun., April 26-30, 8pm. (un)Staged Readings: Sat.-Sun., April 29-30, 3pm. Free
