In 2011, Dell’Arte International premiered Mary Jane: The Musical at its annual Mad River Festival in Blue Lake. Partnering with 12 local songwriters, the play featured Humboldt County-centric characters facing various issues in the marijuana milieu. Quickly gained notoriety, the show was a sellout hit and at the time was the highest-grossing play in Dell’Arte’s 40-year history.
Wrote the Los Angeles Times, “Behind its original songs and humor, the play about marijuana cultivation is a bittersweet, multi-generational tale that celebrates the plant while laying bare the industry’s dark side.”
In Mary Jane: A Musical Potumentary, Mary Jane (Dell’Arte’s Joan Schirle) leaves the wreckage of the Summer of Love and lands in northern California’s Humboldt County, where the hippie becomes a back-to-the-land farmer and helps establish the largest cannabis-producing region in the U.S. As she comes to terms with her life as grower and now mother – and on the eve of federal legislation – she must face down a corporate raider with limitless capital (Edward Asner), who plans to take over the industry. Can this female entrepreneur survive … Or will her career go up in smoke?
