A play by one of America’s most provocative playwrights is on the bill for a local theatre company next month.

Bury Theatre Workshop will be performing Boston Marriage by David Mamet from December 3 to 5 at the Unitarian Meeting House, in Churchgate Street, Bury.

Mamet’s play is a fast paced comedy of errors, complete with his trademark tart dialogue and use of innuendo, through which an exploration of friendship and love occurs.

Set in Victorian New England the play follows Anna and Clare, two bantering, scheming ‘women of fashion’ who have lived together on the fringes of upper-class society.

Catherine, Anna’s woeful and naive maid, falls victim to their emotions and mistreatment.

The action begins with Anna discovering a new protector and planning to spend her new income. Things progress at Clare begins to arrange an assigntation for a respectable young lady at Anna’s abode.

With the women’s plotting and bickering reaching fever pitch, Claire’s love interest sparks a crisis which puts their futures at risk and leads to a search for a solution.

Directed by Maggie Kinnear-King, the all female-cast consists of Erin Lacey as Anna, Lynne Kentish as Clare and Danielle Swanson as Catherine.
