Mary’s Wedding

January 2016
by Stephen Massicotte

Directed by Jeremy Skidmore

A brilliant, romantic, and historical dream play. 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 their first flirtations unfold right as World War I begins to engulf the western world. Nevertheless, their bond begins to strengthen across vast prairies, among advancing soldiers, entwined with chaotic trenches, and begins to fracture the hard rules of time. “Mary’s Wedding” captures an extraordinary moment of innocence and courage with rare sensitivity and beauty.

“One of those theatre experiences to which you can wholly give yourself over with no fear of disappointment. If this production had been a film I would have watched the whole thing all over again the minute it ended.” -New York Theatre Wire
