“This feisty comedy-without-manners, a delight that promises laughs at a rate of knots” – Irish Times
“Fantastic, completely luxurious in language, a brilliant night out” – The View
“Very funny in a thoroughly camp way… Ingrid Craigie and Jane Brennan are quite splendid” – Sunday Independent
From the production team that bought Frank McGuinness’s Electra and Tom Murphy’s The Drunkard to the Dublin stage, a dazzling comedy of very bad Victorian manners from the undisputed master of American contemporary dramatic writing David Mamet.
In Boston Marriage, David Mamet combines glittering Wildean wit with his own brand of razor-sharp dialogue to produce a masterful comedy of bad manners. Set in a Victorian drawing room, the play explores, with Mamet’s characteristic brilliance, the complex relationship between Anna and Claire – two ladies who have lived together on the outskirts of high society. A series of coincidences involving an emerald necklace, Anna’s wealthy ‘protector’, Claire’s young ‘paramour’, and a Scottish maid cause near ruination and tests the bonds of their love and friendship.
David Mamet’s plays include Oleanna, Glengarry Glenross (1984 Pulitzer Prize Winner), American Buffalo, Edmund, Sexual Perversity in Chicago & Speed The Plow. His writing and directing credits include The Postman Always Rings Twice, Oleanna, Homicide and House of Games.
Loveday Ingrams production of When Harry Met Sally is playing in Londons Westend.
There hasn’t been a funnier more stylish play seen in Dublin this year. Don’t miss it.
