A dramatisation of the story surrounding the death by hanging of the Quaker Mary Dyer in 1660

Mary Dyer, The Play - She Died Twice

Author's comments:

The Play (70 A4 pages) was written in the early 1990’s and has been lightly edited in this 2003 version. I refer you to the explanation on Intent of Dialogue Style (bottom of Page 1).

Enjoy your read – Mary Dyer’s place in history is a fascinating tale ! If you download, I’d be glad to be told, via email.

A Scenario of 60 scenes, for a Film of the play, is also available, via email: please apply giving full reasons for interest.

Thank you.

The play itself is in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format and is copied from the original script.

Please be warned however this is a large file (200k) and will therefore take some time to download.

Downloading and use of this Play is free, there is no Author's Fee - unless you are determined to turn it into a Musical, in which case, the Fee is beyond your resources. It is free, particularly to Schools, Drama Groups, Community Groups. Dialogue can be changed, the play can be shortened - as long as there is serious performance intent. I do not believe anything you do can harm the marvellous story of Mary Dyer - Quaker martyr.
