Mary is a singer, actor, writer, and teacher who comes from a long line of storytellers and believes no story is too big or too fantastic – especially if it’s told with grace and wit.
|Mary was delighted when she moved to Toronto from Nova Scotia to find a rich, vibrant folk music community full of talent, big generous personalities and magical stories. People reveal themselves to us through their life histories – inspiring and exhausting, beautiful and ugly, hilarious and terrifying, often all at the same time! Finding enough clarity to share those stories is endlessly fascinating – from open mikes to concert stages, from book musicals to alternative plays, from solo gigs to Broadway (ok, off-Broadway), the aim is the same – to express the spirit of life’s truth, if not always its facts! She appears as a recurring character in Schitt’s Creek; and in Orphan Black; Saving Hope and Reign. Onstage, she made her New York debut in Living With Henry, originated roles in When All the Slaves Are Free (original musical based on music of Joni Mitchell); Sincerely, a Friend (based on the music of Leonard Cohen); Sophie in Sophie Tucker, the Last of the Red Hot Lovers.|
