EverGreen Theatre Ensemble brings David Mamet's “Boston Marriage” to a stage in Naperville, directed by Craig Gustafson of Lombard. The troupe was founded by Craig Berger of Downers Grove, retired professor at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. Curtain is at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.
The quick-witted plot focuses on the relationship between two women and their maid. Mamet, who generally writes about men, exclusively portrays women in the play.
When Berger retired from the College of DuPage in 2003 – as director of theater and founder and artistic director of the professional company based on campus, Buffalo Theatre Ensemble – he knew that choosing life at the beach would not be his retirement direction. Afterall, the arts had been part of his life since his teenage years.
In creating EverGreen Theatre Ensemble, the vision became “Engaging Stories of Dreams, Lost and Found.”
Organizers say the goal of the professional Naperville-based company of actors and artists is to create performances that encourage people to reaffirm their lives and reconstruct the paths to their dreams.
"Boston Marriage" is presented in North Central College’s Madden Theatre, 171 E. Chicago Ave. For seats, visit www.facebook.com/EverGreenTheatreEnsemble, and select box office to order tickets.
