Mary Berry’s Fashionable Friends
The Lewis Walpole Library, Farmington, Connecticut, 12–13 May 2023

An entirely new version of the comedy directed and abridged by Laura Engel, Duquesne University

In 1801 Anne Damer, Mary Berry, and Agnes Berry embarked on a remarkable collaboration staging a performance of Berry’s comedy Fashionable Friends as an amateur theatrical production at Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill. Damer and Berry starred in the play as the titular fashionable friends; Damer played the seductive and sly Lady Selina and Berry the sentimental and clever Mrs. Lovell.
