by David Mamet

Directed by Kat Boyce

Performances: Wed 22nd – Sat 25th June 2005, Prompt Corner


It's Mamet but not as you expect it! Around the turn of the last century Anna and Claire are living together...Anna has a new lover who has given her a beautiful emerald necklace and her companion Claire wants to seduce a young woman, who, unfortunately, knows a little too much about the emerald. Mamet's comedy of manners, very much in the style of Coward or Wilde, shows how these two women react to this crisis that threatens their comfortable way of life. Funny and quite poignant Boston Marriage is an examination of relationships between women, class and put upon maids....
