Mary's is a radio play by Wally K. Daly. The writing of it was prompted by a challenge to Daly from actress Elizabeth Rider to write "decent parts for women." Although written several years earlier, it took four years for the BBC to decide to produce it, due to the controversial subject matter. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 13 October 1987, and won a Giles Cooper Award that same year. The length is 58 minutes[1].
