Sell-out show returns to Dundee

The critically-acclaimed show, ‘Dundee’s Four Marys’ is set to return to the city where it was written next week.

Following three sell-out seasons, the show will return to the stage at the University of Dundee. Written copies of the play, with a foreword by Dundee-born, Hollywood actor and former Rector of the University, Brian Cox, will be available for purchase.

Written and produced by Eddie Small, Tutor of English at the University, the show brings together the legacy of four of the city’s most influential women - Mary Ann Baxter, Mary Slessor, Mary Lily Walker and Mary Brooksbank and the impact their lives had on the city and its workers.

The play covers the remarkable stories of these four women, shedding light on how they individually transformed Dundee.

Eddie said, “I am delighted that Dundee’s Four Marys is returning to the stage. Their impact on the city is so widespread that their legacy touches the lives of almost everyone living in Dundee today.

“From pioneering social work to the very foundation of the University of Dundee, these four Marys are true heroes of Tayside and we cannot wait to celebrate them on stage again.”

‘Dundee’s Four Marys’ can be seen at the University’s Chaplaincy Centre, Cross Row, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 27th and Friday 29th September.
