Mary’s Wedding

Directed by Cody Nickell

On the eve of her wedding to another man, Mary dreams of meeting a young soldier, their blossoming love, and the winds of fate that blew them apart when he goes to battle in World War I. Haunting and achingly romantic. In the words of the playwright, "a memorial to both the Great War and Great Love."

“[a] wonderfully tender, poignant story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate”
