Show Info

By Marie Kohler
Directed by Laura Gordon

With Phoebe González, Josh Krause, Brian Mani, Rebecca Hurd, Triney Sandoval, Miriam A. Laube, Emily Fury Daly, Ty Fanning, Rex Young, R. Ward Duffy, and Liz Days

An ambitious 20th century academic discovers James Boswell’s lost journals and finds she cannot resist his 18th century literary charms. While reading about his wild and wooly adventures in “A Tour of the Scottish Hebrides” with Samuel Johnson, she is coaxed towards a life of greater authenticity - and fun! Heart and mind spar wittily in this comedic drama about friendship, tolerance, and the written word. 

BOSWELL was a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize Finalist and named "Best of the Year" by Milwaukee Magazine.
