The Testament of Mary Summary

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.

The 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. The New York Times calls The Testament of Mary “beautiful and daring." The New York Review of Books calls it “subversive and ruthless”, and lauds it for its “sensational theatricality.” And Entertainment Weekly says it is “spellbinding and emotional. A generous leap of imagination."
