Award-winning stage and screen actress Fiona Shaw returns to Broadway tomorrow, Tuesday, March 26, when preview performances begin for The Testament of Mary, by the acclaimed author Colm Tóibín, directed by Deborah Warner. The production will officially open on Monday, April 22 for a twelve-week limited engagement through Sunday, June 16.
The Testament of Mary takes place after the Crucifixion. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is in the city of Ephesus where she is both guarded and protected. As two of her son's followers set about giving shape to Jesus' story, Mary tells her own story - the one which has not been heard.
This historic collaboration between actress Fiona Shaw and director Deborah Warner results in the creation, for the first time, of a new work for Broadway, written by acclaimed author Colm Tóibín. Scribner published The Testament of Mary last fallto international acclaim. The New York Times called it "beautiful and daring." London's The Independent proclaimed it as "a searing, stunning work." "Flawless. Touching, moving and terrifying," said the New Statesman. Entertainment Weekly raved, "it's spellbinding; exquisitely emotional. A generous leap of imagination," and The New York Review of Books called it "subversive and ruthless, Tóibín's boldest jump yet," and lauded it for its "sensational theatricality."
