“This sparely elegant production of the Irish novelist Colm Toibin's revisionist – to some, blasphemous – monologue begins with a conjuring trick.
The stage is a black marble temple. Our eyes are drawn to an empty alcove. The lights dip to deep black. And suddenly there she is, Mary Mother of God, with all the bells and whistles. Votive lights twinkle. A halo glitters above her head. In her arms she cradles a lamb. On her chest, her eviscerated, immaculate heart glows deep red.”
