ABOUT

“We shall have a party and we must have a pie.

Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie”

Boston Marriage is a 1999 play by American playwright David Mamet. The play concerns two women at the turn of the 20th century who are in a Boston Marriage, a relationship between two females that may involve both physical and emotional intimacy.

Anna and Claire are two decadent scheming “women of fashion” who have long lived together on the fringes of upper-class society. Anna has just become the mistress of a wealthy man. Claire is infatuated with a respectable young lady and wants to enlist the jealous Anna’s help in concocting a seduction. The play is delivered through quick, witty Victorian-era dialogue, mixed with double entendres and vernacular expressions, to explore the relationship between the two women and their maid.
