Stetson University presents David Mamet’s wickedly funny play Boston Marriage at Stetson University Theatre Arts’ Second Stage, located inside the Museum of Art, 600 N. Woodland Boulevard, adjacent to the Deland campus. NOTE: Due to Hurricane Matthew, performances are now scheduled for October 20-22 at 8pm.
The term “Boston Marriage,” taken from a Henry James novel, refers to two women who live together in an intimate relationship. Mamet’s play has been described as a cross between The Importance of Being Earnest and Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons). Scandalously witty and devastatingly intimate, the play provides a glimpse into the relationship between two turn-of-the-last-century women, who are devoted to each other even as they involve others in their sexual schemes.
Tickets may be purchased at the door: $12 for adults, $10 for Seniors and non-Stetson students. Stetson students, staff and faculty are admitted free with a valid Stetson ID. For more information or reservations, please call Stetson University’s Second Stage Theatre Arts box office at (386) 822-8700.
