Valet at A.C.T. Bike to Theater Night: Testament

Help us Valet park bicycles at the A.C.T. Bike to Theater Night! Originally staged at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2011 (retitled for Broadway in 2013 as The Testament of Mary), Testament is an incisive, lyrical and deeply human work that recounts in riveting detail a defiant mother's story of her son, who has been taken from her by men she regards as fanatics. Variety raved that “you’ve never seen anything like it,” and you won’t want to miss Canadian leading actor Seana McKenna (A.C.T.’s Napoli!) in this powerful, tour-de-force role.
