Notes from the audience
“Quakers generally avoid superlatives, but Jeanmarie was spectacular.”
The play takes place in the last moments of the life of Quaker Mary Dyer, executed by the Puritan Church/State Government in early New England. The creator-performer of HERETIC said, “I have come to consider Mary Dyer the Mother of the First Amendment. It is because of her terrifying and selfless act that we enjoy the freedom of speech and to worship as we choose.” The play is honest, painfully graphic and uncompromising in its storytelling. Reviews are uniformly raves and audiences love it.
