The Tragedy of Mariam, the Fair Queen of Jewry is a Jacobean-era drama written by Elizabeth Cary, Viscountess Falkland, and first published in 1613. There is some speculation that Cary may have written a play before The Tragedy of Mariam that was lost, but most scholars agree that The Tragedy of Mariam is the first extant original play written by a woman in English.
