'One of the most versatile and commanding stage actresses in the English-speaking world' (Los Angeles Times), Fiona Shaw portrays the Virgin Mary as a mother struggling with the loss of a son. More familiar to us through images than words, Mary is given a powerful voice, her story becoming a bold and subversive dramatic tour de force. 
 
Adapted from Colm Tóibín's Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel, the Tony Award-nominated production reunites director Deborah Warner, a Barbican Artistic Associate, with longtime collaborator Shaw, furthering 'one of the most richly creative partnerships in theatrical history' (Daily Telegraph). 
 
The Testament of Mary receives its only UK performances, having mesmerised critics and audiences on Broadway. 
 
'You’ve never seen anything like it. A hugely imaginative work. Fiona Shaw gives a soul-baring performance. She is matchless' Variety
