The Testament of Mary
This show has now finished

The mother of all controversies… For 2,000 years Mary has been silent. A woman seen but not heard. Until now. This Mary is no saint, not meek, nor obedient. She is clear-eyed and sharp-witted. In a voice that is both tender and furious, she speaks a defiant truth. Piecing together memories of Jesus’ last days, Mary brings a mother’s powerful perspective to a very complex and human story of turmoil and sacrifice. At the core of this profound performance beats the heart of a woman grieving an unbearable loss. The question is: was it worth it?
