Submit a review for Mary’s Wedding
When Mary and Charlie unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and they must surrender their fates to the uncertainties of the tumultuous times during the First World War.
In this award-winning Canadian play, their love story unfolds against the most devastating conflagration of war that the world had yet seen, as the playwright weaves time, dreams and memory together to remind us that the heart is beautifully resilient.
Mary’s Wedding had its world premiere in 2002 at Alberta Theatre Projects’ playRites Festival and has since received more than a hundred productions in Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
“In Mary’s Wedding,” said director Brandon Woolley, “all we really know for sure is that we are entering the subconscious of a young woman who is trying to remember, reimagine and revisit a relationship with her beloved as she prepares for her wedding day. Ultimately, I hope her dream will take audiences on a journey that is enlightening, cathartic and whimsical.”
Reviews will be posted after Mary’s Wedding opens on April 21, 2017
