Lincoln Center Theater presents the world premiere LCT3 production of Marys Seacole, written by Jackie Sibblies Drury and directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, which is set to begin previews at the Claire Tow Theater on February 9, 2019, ahead of an official opening on February 25 and a limited engagement through to March 24, 2019.

Synopsis: "In Marys Seacole, Mary is an ambitious Jamaican woman determined to live a grand life; her adventures take her across oceans and eras, from a battlefield of the Crimean War to a contemporary nursing home, and many times and places in between. Marys Seacole is an exploration of what it means to be a woman who is paid to care."

Obie Award winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine will lead the cast of six as Mary, alongside Karen Kandel and Lucy Taylor, with additional casting to be announced at a later date.

The creative team behind Marys Seacole features scenic design by Mariana Sanchez, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.
