MARY ROSE

by J.M. Barrie

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

 

An old, tiny Sussex manor house standing empty and for sale is haunted by the ghost of a young woman who once lived there. 37 years earlier, a 12 year old girl by the name of Mary Rose goes missing on a small island in the Outer Hebrides whilst on holiday with her parents. A month later she mysteriously returns unaware that she has been away for any length of time.


Years later, Mary Rose returns to the same island with her young husband and disappears for a second time. After the passage of 23 years, when her family have come to terms with her loss, she reappears yet again but by now her parents, husband and child have all aged whilst Mary Rose has remained just the same as the day she vanished.


In this hauntingly beautiful play, from the creator of Peter Pan, comes an exploration of time, love and loss. These timeless themes are given a thrilling revival with a fresh treatment in the trademark style of Conn Artists; with an ensemble cast of five actors, and featuring some of Barrie’s own stage directions as interwoven pieces of narrative, original music, a digital soundscape, and a bold reimagining of the ‘traditional’ set design, all creating what living, modern theatre does best.


Mary Rose, spanning a period of over 30 years, will leave you spellbound by its mystical nature and moved by its deepest yearnings to be reunited with the ones we love.
