Mary Shelley Symposium: Spilling Her Guts

This event is part of the Mary Shelley Symposium at Stranger With My Face International Film Festival. Book below for individual ticket(s) or buy a festival pass.

Body horror in film and theatre



Can body horror be successfully presented on stage? Playwright Alison Mann will discuss how ‘body horror’ films such as David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers (1988) and The Brood (1979) have informed her theatrical worlds.

Her play She’s Not Performing and her new work The Surgeon’s Hands explore psychological traumas, disrupted identities and troubled family relationships through a mixture of physical manifestations and surreal landscapes, where the female protagonists are metaphorically and (almost) literally turned ‘inside-out’.

Alison Mann’s plays have been performed at Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne Fringe, La Mama and Tasmanian Theatre Company. Her new play The Surgeon’s Hands, produced by Blue Cow Theatre, opens on 21 April at the Backspace Theatre Royal, Hobart.
