Meet Our One Act playwrights: Selah Atwood's "Mary, Mary"
Exploring the reign of Queen Mary I in Selah Atwood's "Mary, Mary"
We asked our One Act writers and directors to share a bit about their works with us. Here’s writer/director Selah Atwood on “Mary, Mary.”
I thought telling Mary’s story alongside a nursery rhyme inspired by her would be a really interesting way to tell some of her story, and I feel that it (hopefully!) will be blunt and straightforward while leaving an air of discomfort behind. History is uncomfortable, and even more so when it’s told through the use of innocent sing-song!
Selah has been a Moppet for about seven years, with some favorite roles including Horatio in “Hamlet,” Goneril in “King Lear,” and Cassius in “Julius Caesar.”
