Neith Boyce and Hutchins Hapgood
in Enemies
Provincetown Playhouse
1916
Hapgood Family Papers

Co-authored by Neith Boyce and her husband, Hutchins Hapgood, Enemies was among the plays produced by the Provincetown Players in their first season in New York. 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. A biting satire, Enemies was based in part on a conversation between the couple and in early drafts, the characters were named “Neith” and “Hutchins.”
