– TIME OUT CHICAGO

Around 90 minutes

A world premiere and Goodman Theatre commission

Outrageous. Ruthless. Explosive. Named "Best Provocative Playwright" by the Village Voice, Thomas Bradshaw pulls no punches in his social satire Mary.

At the height of what Time magazine dubbed "AIDS hysteria" in 1983, college student David invites his boyfriend home to his parents' house in Maryland where nothing has changed since the 1800s—including the slave quarters. Confronting hypocrisy and oppression with exhilarating wit, Bradshaw's incendiary work is "likely to leave you speechless!" (The New York Times)
