Oh Mary! is a one-woman physical theatre show, based on the incredible life story of Mary Bryant. It is brought to you by Bec Applebee, well known for her work with internationally acclaimed companies Kneehigh Theatre, Golden Tree Productions, Cousin Jack’s, Dalla and the Tosta Band.
This is the true story of an 18th century Cornish highwaywoman who survived the raw brutality of life as a convict, sailing halfway around the world to Australia. Mary is at the heart of one of Maritime’s greatest escapes. This is an epic, little known story of personal strength, bravery, loss and of an indomitable human spirit.
Bec Applebee becomes our heroine, telling her story with a combination of physical storytelling, song, dance and the ingenious use of a trunk and a mop.
The show features a driving soundtrack recorded by bands Dalla and Radjel including specially commissioned tunes by Neil Davey.
This show is an adventure through the senses.
