A love story set against the backdrop of World War I, Mary’s Wedding is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope, and survival.
When Mary and Charlie unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and they must surrender their fates to the tumultuous times of the First World War. Their love story extends from the fields of Canada’s Prairies to the battlefields of France’s Moreuil Wood, as the playwright weaves time, dreams and memory together to remind us that the heart is beautifully resilient. Mary’s Wedding is a moving memorial to both the Great War and great love.
