BOSTON MARRIAGE (article first published : 2005-08-16)

Directed by Steven Stead with impressive costumes from the State Theatre and a set designed by Greg King, Boston Marriage is described as a droll comedy of very bad manners set in a Victorian drawing room. It will run in tandem with Art at Kwasuka Theatre on alternate nights.

Boston Marriage is written by David Mamet who wrote Olianna and has been described as one of the funniest American comedies in recent years.

Anna and Claire are two scheming ladies of fashion who have lived together on the fringes of upper class society. Anna has just become the mistress of a wealthy man from whom she has received an enormous emerald - and an income to match.

Claire, meanwhile, is infatuated with a respectable young lady and wants to enlist Anna’s help for an assignation. When Clare’s inamorata suddenly appears, it sets off a crisis that puts the valuable emerald at risk and threatens the women’s future.

Boston Marriage features Clare Mortimer, Belinda Henwood and Janna Ramos Violante. It opens at Kwasuka Theatre on August 18 and runs until September 11 with shows on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 20h00 with a performance on Sundays at 15h00.

Tickets R65. Book through Computicket.
