David Mamet

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

Boston Marriage is a three-woman play set in Victorian New England written by David Mamet, will be the next Workshop production.

Show dates: Wednesday May 20th-Saturday May 23rd at the Corn Exchange.

Directed by David Bishop, this bitingly funny 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 much put upon maid. Through humour and nuance, the play explores the negotiation, conflict, compromise and reconciliation that arise in a period when women will go to great lengths to find romantic happiness in a male dominated world.

The cast undertaking these demanding roles, are Alison Bishop who will play Anna, Julie Devine who will be playing Claire and Rachael Mutl who will play their young Scottish maid.

Tickets will be on sale approximately mid April, online at the Corn Exchange website, and at a venue in Biggar (to be decided).  

Ticket prices: £8 Wednesday, Thursday to Saturday £10.

Adult language throughout.

The Biggar Theatre Workshop was founded in 1971 and since then has become one of the main sources of arts facilities in the district, allowing the people of Biggar and the surrounding areas the opportunity to participate in live theatre as well as creating a performance and arts venue for local and travelling theatre groups.

The Workshop is housed in the Biggar Corn Exchange, a Grade B listed building dating back to 1860. The building is a major landmark in the town, built on the site of the old rat-infested Meal House. The new Corn Exchange failed to achieve success as a grain market, and became a popular dancing and entertainment venue. In 1935 the Corn Exchange was gifted to the Biggar Burgh Council and the Biggar Theatre Workshop now leases the building from the local council at a nominal rent as its venue for its theatrical performances.

Now nearing completion of the first phase of an extensive re-furbishment project, Biggar Theatre Workshop at The Corn Exchange are actively looking to include the wider community and visiting groups  to make best use of the building as a more diverse community resource.
