Mysterious yet compelling, bewildering yet intoxicating, a play that mixes poetic rhythms with vernacular phrases, rap-song repetitions with complex psychology.

A husband and wife row about a prescription. A mother and father row about their son, who has become a child soldier. Two sisters row about which one is superior to the other. It emerges that the younger sister, Mary, has killed the child soldier. She is to be stoned to death...

What if all these things were happening here? And what if these people were white?

debbie tucker green's play stoning mary was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in April 2005.

stoning mary is also available in the collection debbie tucker green plays: one.

'So what happened to the bitches that gotta conscience? The underclass bitches, the womanist bitches... What about alla them then? Not a one of them would march for me?'
