Biggar Theatre Worshop Presents:
'A Boston Marriage'
by David Mamet
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.
Directed by David Bishop, this bitingly funny play is set in the 1890s in Anna's drawing room. She is about to receive Claire, her friend and former 'significant other', who has come to visit but with a very particular request. Delivered through quick, witty dialogue, mixed with double entendres and vernacular expressions, the play explores 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 as Anna
Julie Devine as Claire
Rachael Mutl as the long suffering Scottish maid, Catherine.
'Boston marriage, n. An antique term that refers to two single women living together, independent of any male counterparts or support.

Mike Maran Presents:
John Muir - Rhapsody in Green
Biggar Little Festival in support of Biggar Gala week presents: John Muir, Rhapsody in Green (featuring 'Stickeen'- the greatest dog story ever told) written and performed by Mike Maran, directed by Patrick Sandford.
John Muir, Scottish adventurer and father of the American national parks, explores the forests and glaciers of the Pacific North West, saves the life of his friend, Sam Young, on a mountain top, rescues a plucky wee terrior, Stickeen, from a glacier crevasse - daredevil feats matched by inspirational stories. Now Mike Maran shares the wilderness stories about John Muir with you - and Stickeen keeps him right. That dog knows a thing or two, I can tell you!
Anyone interested in preserving the past - the things we could lose if we forget the warnings by pioneering conservationist John Muir - must see this mesmerising, heart stopping one-man show.
Tickets are £10 and will be on sale 1st May.
