Mary's Joy: the anatomy of a martyr

a dramatic reading of

a new play by Jeanmarie Simpson

directed by Mary Kate Riddell

production manager Gene Hall

with Jeanmarie Simpson as Mary Dyer


Mary’s Joy: the anatomy of a martyr

is a solo performance work that examines the life of Mary Dyer, the first colonial woman executed in the New World. She was hanged on June 1, 1660 because she was a Quaker.

The play takes place during the last 80 minutes of her life as she reflects on her past, and grapples with the most fundamental and difficult questions humans ever ask themselves.

A tour-de-force that takes place against the backdrop of the brutal practices of the Puritan Church/State government in early New England, the play is honest, graphic and uncompromising in its storytelling.

The dramatic readings are universally accessible – ASL interpreter, assisted listening devices, large print and braille programs andthe informational program will be read aloud and ASL interpreted. . The building is fully ADA compliant.

There is no admission charge, however donations are gratefully accepted.

Due to extremely graphic imagery, no children will be admitted.

Seating Extremely Limited – no late seating

Donations benefit the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center

and Universal Arts Boulder
