The incredible story of Mary Bryant; Cornish Highway Woman, Convict, Mother and Maritime Adventurer
Bec Applebee is well known for her work with internationally acclaimed companies Kneehigh Theatre, Golden Tree Productions, Cousin Jack’s theatre, Dalla and the Tosta Band now presents for you ‘Oh Mary!’. A one-woman physical theatre show, it is based on the incredible life story of Mary Bryant; Cornish Highway Woman, Convict, Mother and Maritime Adventurer.
“Mary Bryant’s story is one of incredible endurance and indomitable spirit. She is a young woman from Fowey who, as a convict, is sent away to the other side of the world to Botany Bay, Australia. As an instigator she is at the heart of one of Maritime’s greatest escapes in an open cutter with her young family and a band of fellow prisoners. Hers is an epic story of personal strength, bravery and loss. Of an indomitable human spirit” Bec Applebee
