Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The UK premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury’s celebrated new play Marys Seacole comes to the Donmar Warehouse for a strictly limited season.

Mary Seacole was the pioneering Jamaican nurse who bravely voyaged to heal soldiers in the Crimean War. She was a traveller, a hotelier and a businesswoman. She was the most impressive woman you’ve ever met.

Putting the concept of a biopic through a kaleidoscope, Marys Seacole is a dazzling exploration, across oceans and eras, of what it means to be a woman who is paid to care, and how, ultimately, no one is in charge of their own story.

Directed by Nadia Latif, the play stars Déja J. Bowens, Llewella Gideon, Esther Smith, Olivia Williams, and Susan Wooldridge.

Marys Seacole runs from 15 April to 4 June 2022 at the Donmar Warehouse.
