World-Premiere by Tracy Letts (Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award Winner)
at Steppenwolf Main Stage Theatre
Directed by Tony Award Winning Director, Anna D. Shapiro
Also with Carrie Coon, Blair Brown
As Tracy Letts; Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Killer Joe, Superior Donuts and August: Osage County; brings us moments—both pivotal and mundane—from Mary’s life, a portrait of a surprisingly complicated woman emerges. Intimate and moving, Mary Page Marlowe shows us how circumstance, impulse and time can combine to make us mysteries… even to ourselves.
Caroline played young Mary Page Marlowe (one of six actresses including Tony Award winner Carrie Coon, ("Gone Girl" and "The Leftovers") and Tony and Golden Globe Winner, Blair Brown ("Orange is the New Black", Copenhagen") and others playing the character at different ages of her life in this world premiere!
4 STAR REVIEW FROM CHICAGO TRIBUNE!
GLOWING REVIEW FROM THE NY TIMES!
"Under the sensitive direction of Anna D. Shapiro, the actors are all excellent: Caroline Heffernan as the 12-year-old Mary Page..."
Charles Isherwood, New York Times
"A heartbreaking Caroline Heffernan"
Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Mary Page Marlowe is graced with a female ensemble that gives depth and breadth to its anti-heroine. We see Mary Page at 12 (Caroline Heffernan), in a scene that illuminates that moment in childhood when innocence begins to crumble and the disappointments of adulthood first glimmer"
Scotty Zacher, Chicago Theatre Beat
"Six actresses share the title role. Their performances are so thoroughly unified that it is difficult to praise one above the other. Caroline Heffernan plays Mary Page at age 12, already wounded by the world".
Adelaide Lee, Theatre Mania
