In MARYS SEACOLE, Mary is an ambitious Jamaican woman determined to live a grand life; 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. The Lincoln Center Theater/LCT3 production opened at the Claire Tow Theater on February 25, 2019 with a cast that included Gabby Beans, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Marceline Hugot, Karen Kandel, Ismenia Mendes and Lucy Taylor.
MARYS SEACOLE went on to enjoy an extended run with playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury and director Lileana Blain-Cruz winning a Special Citation Obie Award for their work. Quincy Tyler Bernstine won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Play for her performance as Mary as well as an Obie Award for Sustained Excellence.
