New York City
The phrase ‘Boston Marriage’ refers to an intimate domestic relationship between two middle or upper-class women. Mamet’s newest play, Boston Marriage, diverges in form from his previous works, with an all-female cast set in a Victorian drawing room comedy. Mamet combines polished Victorian speech with his trademark sharp vulgarity and explicit sexuality. With witty and incisive repartee reminiscent of Oscar Wilde, a pair of sophisticated, scheming lesbians show that women can be just as calculating as Mamet’s men.
