How would a mother feel watching her child die a brutal and public death? What storms would rage inside her for the rest of her life? In the stunning, Tony-nominated play The Testament of Mary, the mother is Mary, the child is Jesus and the death is the crucifixion. Years after her son has been killed, Mary is visited by the Gospel writers seeking the truth. Through an honest, insightful and moving first-person narrative, Mary recounts her son's final days. Presented by Watertown's New Repertory Theatre and based on the much-praised novella by author and playwright Colm Tóibín, this play provides a glimpse into the heart and mind of a grieving mother as she's left with one question: Was it worth it?
