Marys Seacole - cast - Donmar

Cast announced for Marys Seacole at the Donmar Warehouse including Olivia Williams

Artistic Director Michael Longhurst and Executive Director Henny Finch of the DOnmar Warehouse have announced the full casting for the UK première of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s new play Marys Seacole.

Directed by Nadia Latif and designed by Tom Scutt, the play runs from 15 April to 4 June 2022.

Marys Seacole stars Déja J. Bowens (Mamie), Llewella Gideon (Duppy Mary), Kayla Meikle (Mary), Esther Smith (Miriam), Olivia Williams (May), and Susan Wooldridge (Merry).

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 UK premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury’s celebrated new play reunites the team behind her critically-acclaimed Fairview in 2019.
