About the show

AMP is a multi-media solo horror play inspired by the writings of Mary Shelley, Luigi Galvani’s discovery of “animal electricity,” the birth of modern feminism, and the monsters society creates. This work explores scientist Luigi Galvani's discovery of animal electricity in 1790, the ways it informed the creation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as well as the development of electroshock therapy in the 1950’s. As Mary Shelley begins the process of writing Frankenstein in 1816, her writings are interwoven with film interviews from inside an asylum with a woman who auditions for the Boston Symphony during their first historic “blind auditions” in 1952.
