by Elizabeth Cary

Shakespeare's Contemporaries

Season of 2021

As a part of our ongoing series of Shakespeare’s contemporaries, BSF presents Elizabeth Cary’s The Tragedy of Mariam. Telling the story of Mariam, the second wife of the Biblical King Herod, Cary’s play is a deft and thoughtful consideration of the place of women in a patriarchy. Mariam is the earliest example of an English-language play penned and published by a woman, as well as the only surviving woman-written play from the Jacobean era. Baltimore Shakespeare Factory is proud to present the US premiere of Mariam on our stage.
