Bloody Poetry + the (un)Staged Reading Series

Tue 8th – Sun 13th Aug 2017


“A "Romantic act of theatrical conjuring" -Austin Chronicle ”





Invulnerable Nothings


After sold out residencies at The Brooklyn Art Library and The Sekrit Theater Austin, as well as recent appearances at AvignonLeOFF2017 and Walcot Chapel Arts Bath, Invulnerable Nothings presents Howard Brenton's Bloody Poetry at The Leith Volcano with Volcano Theatre Company for EdFringe2017. Bloody Poetry is joined at Fringe by free (un)Staged Readings from Byron and the Shelleys, presented throughout Leith and greater Edinburgh!

Brenton's play details collected myth and mud around the ménage à quatre of Mary Shelley, P.B. Shelley, Claire Clairmont, and Lord Byron from 1816 until Shelley's death in 1822. Site responsive and staged exclusively for intimate audiences, this production coincides with significant bicentennial celebrations around the Romantics. The (un)Staged Readings serve as companion pieces to Brenton's text and explore new theatrical potentials in Cain, Prometheus Unbound, and Frankenstein.
