When Mary and Charlie, filled with the passion, vulnerability, and impulsiveness of youth, unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and Mary and Charlie must surrender their love and fate to the uncertainties of their tumultuous times. A play with a heart as big as the land that serves as its backdrop, Mary's Wedding is a wonderfully tender, poignant story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate.
