Synopsis

Lord Byron, England’s most famous exiled poet, wants to go sailing, but his plans are foiled when a violent storm rocks the shores of Lake Geneva. Frustrated, virtually trapped inside the Villa Diodoti, Byron finds relief when his new friend and neighbor, Percy Shelley, arrives seeking shelter. Accompanying Shelley are his mistress, Mary Godwin, and Mary’s stepsister, Claire. As the rain continues to pour, the friendly gathering of neighbors turns into a weekend fraught with secrets, scandals, ghost stories and musical beds. In other words… things get complicated.

“…a literary candy dish of sexually charged hijinks…”
Michael Dale, BroadwayWorld.com
“…an entertaining play, which retells this episode of literary history with sophistication and wit.”
Martin Denton, nytheatre.com
“More to the point, there is thunder and lightning in the dialogue as these literary giants singe each other with language that sparks and burns.”
Barbara & Scott Siegel, Theatremania.com
“Bush’s dialogue is witty with an overlay of the conversational brilliance credited to the dandified British Regency era.”
