“Mary Jane” is a play about a single mother, Mary Jane (Guinevere Casper), who is the caregiver for a 2-year-old who has multiple serious conditions including cerebral palsy. In her small New York apartment, Mary Jane faces the challenges put to her with extraordinary strength, compassion and what can only be described as unconditional love. Through her journey, Mary Jane develops a support system and connections with women from all walks of life.
