Renowned for her exquisite sense of language, Mary is a subtle master of the literary tale. Her wit flashes with quicksilver humour; her insight unveils hidden truths in poetic turns of phrase.She favours folktales and fairy tales with strong heroines and sound plots, but her listeners should be ready for some surprises. Her rock-solid, no-nonsense delivery style is the perfect set-up for the uncanny and the fantastic.
For more than a decade, Mary has entertained audiences at the Fourth Stage of the National Arts Centre, the Tea Party in the Byward Market, the Bytown Museum, the Billings Ghost Walk, and at seniors’ centres, festivals, libraries and conferences. Early in 2016, Mary toured British Columbia with The Game’s Afoot: Stories from Sherlock Holmes. This program was first presented as part of the Ottawa StoryTellers’ 2014/2015 series at the Fourth Stage.For many years, Mary was co-coordinator of the series at The Tea Party in Ottawa and has taught the Introductory Storytelling Workshop for Ottawa StoryTellers.
