Video - Sensory


Generally one person speaks at a time without other loud sounds in the background.

However, the sound quality in general is poor, as the footage was recorded via Zoom. It may be helpful to turn on CC (Closed Captioning) in order to view the subtitles. If you find the audio unpleasant, you can watch the video with the sound turned off.


There are no strobes or other visuals that are intentionally jarring.

However, as the footage was recorded via Zoom, the video quality is poor and frequent glitches and jumps may be unpleasant for some viewers. If you find the low video quality unpleasant, it may help to make your picture smaller, watch on a smaller device, or to listen to the video without watching the screen.

Plot Description

(Almost) Making Let's Eat Mary is a video featuring the cast and crew of what would have been the world premiere of Brooke Allen's stage play Let's Eat Mary. Before the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered theatres across the country, the collaborators had already experienced months working on this unique production. In the video, the cast and crew offer audiences a window into a rehearsal process designed to center accessibility and sustainability, discuss Allen's delightfully biting feminist comedy, and share clips from remote rehearsals.

Let's Eat Mary finds the Pride and Prejudice siblings rowing up to a tiny desolate island on a quest to escape the patriarchy... or at least that's what Lizzie keeps going on about. Without connections to this new place, the sisters struggle to shed old expectations and soon wonder if they've made the right choice leaving everything behind. Perhaps removal and isolation can't provide what they seek... or maybe this whole ordeal is Mary's fault, she's the worst. Fast-paced and brushed with punk-rock, politics, and heart, Let's Eat Mary takes an absurd leap where Pride and Prejudice leaves off, bringing audiences, regardless of their familiarity with Jane Austen's original, on a hilarious ride satirizing our current state of affairs.
