ENEMIES was originally performed by the married couple and playwrights, Neith Boyce and Hutchins Hapgood, in 1916 as part of the first Provincetown Players' season in New York City, With clever dialogue, the play explores a “modern,” nontraditional, non-monogamous marriage and anticipates some of the concerns that twentieth-century feminists would continue to raise about the institution of marriage.
