Exploring the complicated biography of the woman who redefined horror, this new play written by and starring Maggie Lou Rader (Marian, Pulp, Silent Sky, Hearts Like Fists, and Know’s Education Director) takes the stage for 8 performances.
So grab a shovel, and let’s see what we can dig up this September in Mary’s Monster.
