HIGH PRAISE FOR THE
TESTAMENT OF MARY

The Testament of Mary

Opening weekend of The Testament of Mary was a huge success – two sold out houses and a generous helping of positive reviews. Book your seats now to avoid disappointment!

The Testament of Mary

"Holly Turner’s multi-layered performance reveals all ... gradually — it doesn’t give up its secrets easily, without a struggle — in the course of this fascinating, and harrowing, extended monologue. ... In her watchful, quietly fierce performance Turner makes us see the human cost of great earth-changing events."
~ Liz Nicholls (12thnight.ca)

"It’s a story about any mother who is trying to cope with grief, and especially with witnessing the violent death of her son. In the specifics, we find the universality."
~ Jenna Marynowski (After the House Lights)

"[S]eldom have performer and subject been so well-wedded. [Turner] pulls Mary’s intense pain, anger and loss from some deep inner depth. She prowls about the stage – stark and strong. … Schmidt is certainly the director for this show. In a bold move, he sets his performer behind a net of small lights, which could have distanced the audience from the emotions on display – but surprisingly doesn’t, keeping Mary present but removed at the same time."
~ Colin McLean (Gigcity)

"It is a strikingly beautiful play to watch, particularly because of how Trevor Schmidt's Set and Costumes are lit by Adam Tsuyoshi Turnbull's lighting. This is not the cool, mild Mary portrayed in the New Testament but one that simmers beneath the surface so perhaps it is also appropriate that Holly Turner, who plays Mary fiercely and intelligently, is dressed in warm reds instead of the cool blues we often associate with the Virgin Mother."
~ Kristen Finlay (Finster Finds)

SOCIAL MEDIA SAVES THE DAY!

Before we could even open the show, posters for The Testament of Mary were torn down all along Whyte Avenue. We shared this unfortunate news on our social media platforms and our friends responded by sharing the message of the vandalism and spreading the news of the show. We thank all our social media followers for their efforts to promote the show when one of our advertising venues was denied us.
