Boston MarriageBoston Marriage
By David Mamet
March 25 - April 16, 2005

Directed by Terry Veal

Carpenter Square Theatre presents the Oklahoma premiere of BOSTON MARRIAGE.

David Mamet (author of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS, THE UNTOUCHABLES, THE SPANISH PRISONER and more) channels Oscar Wilde in his comedy, as he mixes verbal humor with elements of farce to tell the story of three ladies at the turn of the 20th Century.

Two of the women once lived together in an arrangement termed a "Boston Marriage," i.e. without any male support.  Now Anna has snared a rich "protector" who has given her an enormous emerald necklace and a large monthly stipend to match. When Anna tells Claire of their good fortune, Claire has her own surprise:  She is infatuated with a young woman. From there, jealousy, surprise identities, and even a sťance fuel the ladiesí predicament as they try to stave off poverty and prison.

Rhonda Clark, as the melodramatic Anna, co-stars with Michelle Swink as the fickle Claire, while Sue Ellen Reiman is their hapless Scottish maid.  Terry Veal directs the comedy, with Corey Martin serving as the designer for the period costumes and set. Steven Gillmore designs the lighting.
