San Jose Repertory Theatre presents the U.S. Premiere of Mary's Wedding, the award-winning play by Stephen Massicotte that took Canadian theater by storm. Julie Jesneck and Cody Nickell star as two young lovers in the unforgettable new drama of love and loss set during the First World War. Michael Butler directs.
The play is a haunting romance about a young Canadian couple torn apart by World War I. Mary, newly arrived from England, seeks shelter in a rural Alberta barn during a fierce thunderstorm and unexpectedly meets Charlie, a handsome young farm boy. The year is 1914 and an even more malevolent storm is sweeping across Europe. Told as a recurring dream, the lines of reality and fantasy blur as scenes of innocent first love intermingle with the bloody battlefields of France.
