Description

Dangerous Meredith’s Conversations of Regret

Talking about Things that Make You Cringe.

A Day of Failure Celebration

What do Victor Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll have in common? Both are men of science who stuffed up. Victor Frankenstein made and gave life to a creature, only to find that it was morally and physically grotesque. Dr Jekyll’s dabblings in potions didn’t turn out he way he intended. The novels in which these characters debuted describes the horror of Victor Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll at the consequences of their experiments and charts their ghastly downfalls.

Join Dangerous Meredith for a discussion of two classic horror novels, commiserate with poor old Victor and Dr Jekyll, and speculate as to what you would have done with Frankenstein’s creature or Mr Hyde. Using the famous creations of Mary Shelley and Robert Louis Stevenson, Conversations of Regret unpack what it means to fail – and fail big – in a way that is empathetic, imaginative, and fun.

You don’t have to have read the novels to take part, just bring a sense of curiosity and some imagination. There will be snacks.
