This nightmarish and fantastical play launched Annex Theatre's 30th Season, as one of Annex’s most ambitious projects ever.

Scary Mary” is propelled along by the singular directorial vision of Eddie DeHais, who excels at creating striking tableaux and evoking remarkably tactile worlds with a combination of ordinary objects and intricate puppets

When a drop of Mary’s blood falls down down down to the center of the Earth, something Evil and Ancient wakes up in the shadows, and now the horrors of the dark have a taste for her. Mary must go on an epic quest through the Nightmares Nine to make a potion to put The Slither back to sleep and save her soul from his gnashing teeth. Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine is a hilarious and hallucinatory fairy tale that creeps, crawls, and catapults its way through the bizarre landscape of the imagination as Mary fights for her very life amidst the ever-encroaching darkness.
