Mary Rose tells the lyrical, stirring story of a girl who disappears only to return mysteriously with no memory of time passed, setting off a heartbreaking and thrilling course of events. First performed in 1920, and considered by many Barrie scholars to be a sequel (of sorts) to Peter Pan, this haunting tale of love, loss, ghosts and the living became a major obsession and inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock. Rep Stage’s Producing Artistic Director Michael Stebbins, who directed Two by J.M. Barrie: The New Word and The Old Lady Shows Her Medals, reunites cast members Christine Demuth, Marueen Kerrigan, and Bill Largess for the autumnal offering.
