Mary Rose (2011)
by J. M. Barrie
(adapted by Jay Presson Allen)
Directed by George Toles
Featuring Jane Burpee, Ivan Henwood, Toby Hughes, Talia Pura, Robert Smith, Thomas Toles, Jane Walker
Alfred Hitchcock saw J. M. Barrie’s Mary Rose in its original production, and wanted to film it, even asking Jay Presson Allen to write a screenplay after she wrote the screenplay for Hitchcock’s Marnie (1964). Our production incorporated dialogue from both Barrie’s play and Presson Allen’s script adaptation.
“5 STARS. The entire cast, led by Jane Walker as the child-like Mary Rose, is admirable, and Tobias Hughes is able to lend some comic relief as a Scottish local who becomes ensnared in the mystery.” — Amanda Stefaniuk, Uptown Magazine
“Winnipeg theatre royalty George Toles directs this ghost story penned by Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie. This is a nuanced, somewhat enigmatic play, performed by some of the city’s best actors. It would be right at home on any of the city’s major stages.” — Mary Agnes Welch, Winnipeg Free Press
