Mary Rose

JM Barrie's haunting play about a sinister Scottish island and a girl who never grows up. With Bill Paterson, Bryony Hannah, James Fleet, Oliver Chris and Pippa Haywood.

JM Barrie's haunting play about a sinister Scottish island and a girl who never grows up. A soldier sits staring into the fire in an empty, dark house while an unsettling and tragic history unfolds before him. Written in the aftermath of the First World War, Barrie's play about loss and the mystery of life is by turns comic, eerie and heartbreaking.

Original music is composed and performed by singer cellist Laura Moody.
