James Boswell’s lost journals, an ambitious 20th-century woman cannot resist
his literary charms whilst reading of his wild and woolly adventures in A
Tour of the Scottish Hebrides. Speaking through his diaries, Boswell
encourages her to live her own life. Falling in love with the lively
narratives, she sees a person, time, and landscape wondrously revealed – as
well as the possibility for a more authentic life. Heart and mind spar wittily
in this delightful new adaptation of her own work by Wisconsin playwright Marie
Kohler, who Milwaukee Magazine called "One of the best voices in American
Parkside theatre arts students—two actors and two techs— will have the
incredible opportunity to help produce and perform in Boswell at
the 2019 Edinburg Fringe Festival for the month of August as part of an ongoing
collaboration with Marie Kohler and her production company.
