Boston Marriage

Headstrong Collective, in partnership with the Campbell House Museum, presents
Boston Marriage
by David Mamet

Directed by Kelli Fox
Starring Catherine McNally and Deborah Drakeford
Featuring Charlotte Dennis
April 7-26, 2015

A seduction of words, Boston Marriage invites us into a world of innuendo, biting comedy, and Mamet’s sharp dialogue. Living together on the fringe of society’s elite in the 1890s, Anna and Claire, with their beleaguered maid Catherine, attempt to arrange a “vile” assignation with a respectable young lady. With their precarious lifestyle about to be stripped away, they are compelled to embrace the true nature of love.
