Marys Seacole opened at the Claire Tow Theater February 25, 2019, with a cast that included Gabby Beans, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Marceline Hugot, Karen Kandel, Ismenia Mendes, and Lucy Taylor. The play concerns Mary, an ambitious Jamaican woman, determined to live a grand life; her adventures take her across oceans and eras, from a battlefield of the Crimean War to a contemporary nursing home, and many times and places in between.
