In Lincoln Center's world premiere, an ambitious Jamaican woman is determined to live a grand life. More…
Her adventures take her across oceans and eras, from a battlefield of the Crimean War to a contemporary nursing home, and many times and places in between. "Marys Seacole" is an exploration of what it means to be a woman who is paid to care.
See it if you want to see a sharp, important new play that breaks fresh formal ground even as it asks us to look at some inconvenient truths.
Don't see it if you have trouble holding 2 eras (then & now) & 2 sets of characters within your perceptual frame at one & the same time.
See it if you want to get lost in an experimental play that stretches across time and space and race. A fresh, dynamic, and dizzying work.
Don't see it if you expect an accurate kitchen-sink historical drama. Not. This. Play.
See it if The temporal changes and layering of Mary Seacole's story on that of contemporary Jamaican women is fascinating. The all-female cast is wow!
