More than one hundred years ago, The Story of Mary MacLane set America aflame. A shocking confessional from a 19-year old girl who refused to succumb to the corset-bound prudery of her age, Mary's scandalous memoir broke all the rules - and sold over 100,000 copies.

Ride On Theatre's Bojana Novakovic and Tanya Goldberg bring Mary's writings to the stage in a bold, quirky monologue for two backed with original tunes by Melbourne's own Tim Rogers and accompanied by musicians Dan Witton and Andy Baylor. The Story of Mary MacLane by Herself will whirl you through a kaleidoscopic tale of the greatest genius you've never heard of, defy you to look deep within and dare you to dance with the devil.

'Ride On Theatre is one of the most exciting companies on the independent theatre scene.'
