Mary Barnes archiveWriter's Notes: ' met Mary Barnes through an actor who wanted to play her. Shortly after she had been in a play of mine about baby snatching, Patti Love presented me with a copy of Mary and Joseph Berke's book about Mary's journey through madness, with the idea that I might like to adapt it for the theatre. Accordingly, I approached Berke - and through him, Mary herself. Although she had some amendments to propose, she was extremely generous about a subsequent script, which showed her screaming, assaulting people and smearing bodily fluids on the walls. Still passionate, intense, demanding and self-obsessed, she was also generous, funny and kind. It was a privilege to tell her story.' (David Edgar, The Guardian - 13th July 2001)
