“A beautiful and daring work.
With a poet’s gift
for imagery . . . Toibin is
at his lyrical best.”
New York Times

 

Her son. Her story. The silenced witness speaks. For more than two thousand years, Mary has been silent. Seen by the world but until now, not heard. At long last, this Mary speaks a defiant truth – in a voice that is both tender and fierce. Not the familiar saint, she seeks redemption in sharing her version of the truth of her son’s death by writing her own Gospel. The men are relentless in their attempts to compel her to agree to their version as the official record of the truth. Mary is immovable as she recounts Jesus’ last days – her only son and the incomparable sacrifice. At the heart of this performance is a woman grieving an immeasurable loss and constantly asking the question, was it worth it?
