    In ‘Mary Jane,’ a Young Mother Faces Her Worst Fears

    Jesse Green

    September 25, 2017:

    Plays don’t usually come with content advisories, but “Mary Jane,” by Amy Herzog, should: Parents strongly cautioned.

    Or maybe not just parents. “Mary Jane,” which opened on Monday at New York Theater Workshop, is a heartbreaker for anyone human.

    That’s in part the result of a very delicate sleight of hand Ms. Herzog executes in shaping the story, which at first seems to turn on a movie-of-the-week premise about a very sick child named Alex. Born after just 25 weeks of gestation, he was expected to die within days. That he has made it to 2 years old is a double-edged miracle, living as he does with multiple serious conditions, including cerebral palsy, that require round-the-clock attention and an armamentarium of specialized equipment.
