Bec Applebee – well known for her work with internationally-acclaimed theatre companies – brings to the festival her one-woman physical theatre show Oh Mary! Based on the incredible life story of Mary Bryant who was a Cornish highwaywoman, convict, mother and maritime adventurer.
Mary Bryant is a young woman from Fowey sent to Botany Bay, Australia as convict and who is at the heart of one of Maritime’s greatest escapes in an open cutter with her young family and a band of fellow prisoners. Hers is an epic story of personal strength, bravery and loss.
The show also features unique specially-commissioned tunes and choreography.
