In Mary Page Marlowe, Mary is an accountant from Ohio. She's led an ordinary life, making the difficult decisions we all face as we try to figure out who we really are and what we really want. As Tracy Letts brings us moments from Mary's life, a portrait of a surprisingly complicated woman emerges.
