Boston Marriage is filled with David Mamet's familiar fascination with complex games and language, and his brilliantly terse and crisply paced dialogue. Set in the Victorian era, the play chronicles the relationship between two 'single' women who live together without male presence, who are dependent on each other for support, emotional and otherwise: a Boston marriage. This is a comedy of clever refinement full of the awareness of the socio-political realities of a woman's place in that earlier time.
"[Mamet's characters] are at each others' throats with a wit akin to characters out of Wilde and a
vengeance not unlike those from Pinter, Edward Albee, or Mamet himself." - The Boston Globe
"Devastatingly funny...exceptionally clever." - The New York Times Review
"I loved every clever moment…laughs non-stop...production
design and costumes set the tone with elegance…" - - Tolucan Times
