Mary is a play about being Greek and growing up in Melbourne. It juxtaposes a Greek-Australian family with an Anglo-Australian one, focussing on the relationships between mothers and their teenage daughters. The play explores the conflicts and the comedy of cultural difference, both within families and between them. It is also about the quest for identity as women, daughters and mothers.
This production returned to Playbox 8-19 December by popular demand.
