The Testament of Mary
Mary doesn’t speak much in the gospels. A question at the annunciation, a polite request at Cana. Isn’t it time she had a few more lines? Novelist and playwright Colm Tóibín obliges, supplying a monologue for the queen of heaven (the regal Fiona Shaw) that allows her to speak in her own voice--anguished, indignant, probing.
