“Mary's Medicine” tells the true story of Jamaican nurse Mary Seacole. Mary helped pioneer many holistic medicinal practices during Victorian England. Her methods were controversial for the time and some sought to destroy her reputation. Half Jamaican and Scottish Mary struggled with her identity in the world. Not to be dissuaded she worked hard to prove herself a valuable person in the fields of nursing and medicine. Despite being a decorated hero of the Crimean war history seems to have forgotten Seacole, but now on stage her incredible story of determination, courage and wits will be told.

As a biographic theatrical treatise, Mary's Medicine is so informative, and well-executed by the ensemble, one hesitates to point out a flaw, however, what is missing is a sense of self-discovery or emotional growth within the role of the heroine.

Lead actress Amy Argyle is stunningly perfected in her role as Seacole and drives the orchestration of this play in its entirety...a beautifully crafted ode to a truly great woman.
