MINT THEATER COMPANY presents
The Mint Theater – 311 West 43rd Street, 3rd Floor (between 8th & 9th Avenues), New York City
By Allan Monkhouse
Directed by Jonathan Bank
Monkhouse’s biting comedy tells the story of a household turned upside down by an upstairs/downstairs liaison. Mary, the housemaid, is pregnant by Leonard, the wayward son—and everyone is eager to do the right thing—if only they knew what that was.
MARY BROOME is as fresh and funny as it was 100 years ago. It premiered in 1911 at Manchester’s Gaiety Theatre and quickly moved to London. The Guardian called it “A remarkable piece of work” in “the company of masterpieces in comedy.” The Observer declared its style akin to “Shaw and Hankin, with a dash of Granville Barker.”
“She’s the best housemaid the wealthy Timbrell family have ever had; but little do they know that Mary Broome has been performing rather more personal services for their household’s youngest son… An enduringly pungent piece of provocation.” –The Times, 2011
“What’s striking about the play today is that it not only transports us back to a bygone era of high and mighty middle-class mores and lowly working-class expectations but that it also continues to speak to modern confusions about what men and women can expect from life—and from each other.” – Telegraph, 2011
