Erin Walker plays the role of Mary Magdalene in Noh Garden. In the tradition of Noh, she is the waki, or the secondary character. (The primary character is the shite, who in our film is Jesus. More about that when we post information on the actor playing Jesus.) The waki plays a variety of roles, such as a traveling priest or even a former foe of the shite. In our story, Mary is the medium through whom the true nature of the shite, Jesus, is revealed.
