If you looked back on eleven moments from your life, would you recognize yourself, or would you see a stranger? Mary Page Marlowe is a seemingly ordinary accountant from Ohio who has experienced pain and joy, success and failure. In this sweeping but intimate play, Tracy Letts gives us a haunting portrait of a complex woman, demonstrating how a series of forgotten moments can add up to one memorable life.
Ms. Brown, Ms. Geer, Ms. Jenness, Ms. Maslany, Ms. Overbey and Ms. Pourfar will portray the title character at different points in her life. Ms. Brown originated her role in the world premiere Steppenwolf production in 2016.
MARY PAGE MARLOWE will feature scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, sound design by Brandon Wolcottand casting by Telsey + Company. Lead production support is provided by Gina Maria Leonetti.
This production marks Mr. Letts’ return to Second Stage Theater, which produced the New York premiere of his play, Man from Nebraska, directed by David Cromer, last winter.
