The Marriage Bed
First there was The Maternal Instinct, and now this. (Both plays are about lesbian marriages.) Is this, dare we say, a trend?
A little pricier than usual at $30 ($19 for students), but it’s British. Everything is more expensive when it’s imported. Official info is below:

Fresh from London in its US Premiere!

The Marriage Bed opens on the dawn of Valerie and Jennifer’s wedding. Val wakes up alone in her bed after a night of fevered dreams. Will the toils of her own past prevent this fifty-five year old feminist from marrying her thirty-something Jewish girlfriend? Though recent legislation now grants rights to same sex couples to form civil partnerships, is this enough to tie the knot?

Join Val and Jeni in their Marriage Bed as its covers unfold and their visions of shared wedding cake bring tears of both joy and fear to their souls. The Marriage Bed is not to be missed.

  1. I just saw this show – it was worth every penny! Great show, it presents the issue of gay marriage in a way that humanizes the issue. Nona is so so funny and Tali plays shows such beautiful emotion through her face! You can get a discount off the website.

    Seriously people – go out and see this show – there is so much theatre out there that is just ugh, but this show was so very good.
