“Someone else could have written my diary.”
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Killer Joe, Superior Donuts and August: Osage County. Extended by popular demand through June 5.
Mary Page Marlowe is an accountant from Ohio. She’s led an ordinary life, making the difficult decisions we all face as we try to figure out who we really are and what we really want. As Tracy Letts brings us moments—both pivotal and mundane—from Mary’s life, a portrait of a surprisingly complicated woman emerges. Intimate and moving, Mary Page Marlowe shows us how circumstance, impulse and time can combine to make us mysteries… even to ourselves.

Artistic Director Anna D. Shapiro's letter about Mary Page Marlowe
In the weeks leading up to rehearsals, it is customary for Steppenwolf’s Marketing team to gather for a discussion with the artists about their vision for the play. On a cold winter day, we connected by phone with playwright and ensemble member Tracy Letts, calling from sunny California. Here is an excerpt of the conversation, moderated by artistic producer Jonathan Berry.
In Mary Page Marlowe we become acquainted with the title character at different points in her life. We asked a few of the actresses playing Mary Page to re ect on their own lives, asking “is there a version of yourself that feels unrecognizable to the person you are today?”
