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

A Three Act Scenario

The play is split into three acts here I present the scenario's of each:

  • Act I
    Reprieved once, Mary Dyer can accept a second banishment and escape death. Governor and cleric plan her interrogation
  • Act II
    Son and husband use emotional persuasion. She is interrogated as crowds protest outside. Her death sentence is confirmed
  • Act III
    Her presence remains over the Colony as the play explores ‘What happened next?’ and the dramatic outcome
