In this laugh out loud gory piece inspired by Henry V, Mary V is the one to wear the pants. Mary leads her band of sisters to a battle over the control of a production of ‘Henry V’ that is being staged by the Alpha Male leader Henry, his band of brothers and Katherine their female ingénue. The play explores the ways in which the division between femininity and masculinity ultimately yields destruction for both sexes, and that peace and understanding of gender is preferable to bias and conflict; therefore off stage Mary V’s international production team has embraced the UN's 'heforshe' campaign. Nietzsche's concept of "the abyss gazes back" -- faithfulness to one's ideals -- is also a prominent theme.

Our production team is very passionate about arts' active and crucial role in social activism. Therefore, because this play discusses violence between genders which brings to their mutual demise, we would like to take this opportunity to discuss how peace between the genders could help empower women around the world and in the theatre world. Our production has been inspired by the HeForShe project, which is a solidarity campaign for gender equality initiated by UN Women and promoted by the actress Emma Watson. Therefore, the play will be directed by a male and female directors who are both NYU graduates.

In addition, this production team has created a diverse cast and production team as an attempt to use Cultural Diplomacy to encourage men and women from different countries to create art and culture together in order to overcome prejudice and racism by understanding that communities around the world are facing a lot of the time similar challenges such as violence. We have people who are working on this production and come from: Lebanon, Israel, Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Kenya, Trinidad, South Korea, Mexico and many more countries.

The lead role or Mary will be played by author Rebekah Carrow. Carrow is a recent graduate of the Atlantic Acting Studio Evening Conservatory and has spent the past year writing "Mary V." Carrow seeks to expand "femininity on the American stage" and is particularly interested in exploring themes of gender roles and feminism in her work. Past acting credits include the roles of Mercutio in "Juliet & her Romeo," Nurse/Teacher in "B in Oblivion" and Gigi in "231." This is Carrow's first play.

The two co-directors of the play are Pati Amoroso and Yonatan Weinstein. Amoroso started her career as a teenager, producing her first musical at the age of 16. She would later attend some of the most prestigious film schools in Brazil. She has served as an actress, director, producer and translator for many theater and film productions in Brazil. Amoroso studied at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and is now directing an experimental webseries, "My Life as Morgan" and a play, "They'll Be Callin' Us Witches" for New York festivals.

Co-director Yonatan Weinstein directed a film "My Grandma - Frau Masha," in Israel at age 13. The film was broadcast on Israeli National Television and was shown at festivals around the world. Weinstein went on to study at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts and at the BBC in London. With roles in productions ranging from director to video editor to set crew, Weinstein is expanding his work to the teater with his directorial debut in "Mary V."
