Boston Marriage

By David Mamet

Today debate rages over gay marriage, but in the 19th Century, a Boston Marriage was the accepted term for two women who lived together, independent of men.

Anna and Claire are two outrageously arrogant women on the fringes of upper class, fin-de-siecle society. United against the tyranny of men in a Boston Marriage, Anna accepts expensive gifts from a wealthy married man while Claire attempts the seduction of a younger woman with Anna as her accomplice. Lashings of irony, sarcasm, ribaldry and levity abound, endemic of any long surviving unity of two. 

Presented by Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Gaiety Theatre in association with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2007
