By Amy Herzog

Directed by Kathy Tyree

A story of endurance and devotion, Mary Jane is the tale of an American woman striving for grace and compassion as she struggles to care for her chronically ill son. From Pulitzer Prize finalist and playwright Amy Herzog, Mary Jane is a heart-stopping tribute to domestic caretakers and the challenges — both critical and mundane — of being a single parent.

Tuesday, August 20th at 7:00 p.m.
