THE RISE AND FALL OF MARY JACKSON PEALE is the engaging, complex character study of a British theatrical agent who was born with an insatiable appetite to consume all that life had to offer. For Mary, life knew no boundaries, as she became a creative force to be reckoned with on two continents, first on London's West End and then on Broadway, before crashing and burning at the tender age of 37. The plot twists and character developments are as breathtaking as they are unexpected. She deals with romance (both male and female), betrayal and redemption, and a variety of substance abuses. Along the way her knack for discovering talented playwrights and challenging them to seek higher-ground while she weaved complex financial deals behind-the-curtains made her feared, respected, misunderstood and mistrusted within the theatrical community.
