Boston Marriage - an amusing piece of theatre, if somewhat repetitive
Anton Krueger - 2006-10-16
Showing at the Theatre on the Square until 21 October, alternating with Yasmina Reza's Art. I was curious to see Boston Marriage, because I'd heard that the cast included three female roles. I was wondering whether or not David Mamet could write female characters, since his reputation rests largely on fast-talking, very masculine male leads, and this is a play about two lesbians and a maid. Mamet's men are abrupt, even brutal creations. More often than not they're also emotionally dysfunctional....

Johnny Boskak is Feeling Funny
Janet van Eeden - 2006-10-03
Greig Coetzee is such a pleasure to watch. His masterful performance in this award-winning play deserves every accolade it has received so far. Credit is also due to Genna Lewis for her intelligent direction in a piece which could have been limited through its adherence to rhyming couplets. It is a tour de force – aided by the masterful Syd Kitchen creating a dramatic sound track on stage throughout – creating a Boere Baroque Opera. Johnny Boskak is Coetzee’s edgiest and nastiest...

It is rare in these days of lean budgets for the arts to encounter a production with such a large cast that is supported by such lavish and detailed production values in a locally funded production. Here we had a welcome glimpse...
