Fuselli - The Nightmare

“If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!”

Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Inspired by Ken Russell’s 1986 film, Gothic, and the historical events of 1816, Avalon Larp Studio brings you the story of a night with Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, Percy Shelly, Claire Clairmont and Dr. Polidori. Five poets trapped in an erotic, psychological horror story, created by their own imagination…

Play first as a poet; write poetry, drink, dance, dream laudanum dreams! Play again as their servant where you will escalate the story and take the lead in creating the horrors that haunt them; you will decide whether to guide your poet towards redemption or reconciliation, or destroy them to save yourself.
