Mary Seacole: The pioneering Jamaican nurse
04 June 2022
Donmar Warehouse | £10 - £45
41 Earlham Street, Seven Dials, London WC2H 9LX
Mary Seacole was the pioneering Jamaican nurse who bravely voyaged to heal soldiers in the Crimean War. She was a traveller, a hotelier, and a businesswoman. She was the most impressive woman you’ve ever met.
Putting the concept of a biopic through a kaleidoscope, MARYS SEACOLE is a dazzling exploration, across oceans and eras, of what it means to be a woman who is paid to care, and how, ultimately, no one is in charge of their own story.
Directed by Nadia Latif, the UK premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury’s celebrated new play reunites the team behind her critically acclaimed Fairview in 2019.
The show runs from Friday 15th April – Saturday 4th June 2022.
Evenings – Monday – Saturday: 7.30pm
Matinees – Thursday & Saturday: 2.30pm
