After writing Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-the-Plow, the great dramatist David Mamet has come up with something completely surprising: a comedy! Mamet sinks all his considerable verbal skill into skewering the current political scene in November. It's November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith's chances for re-election are looking grim. Though his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for life after the White House, Chuck isn't ready to give up just yet. Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the president has to find time to pardon a couple of Thanksgiving turkeys, and this PR stunt inspires Smith to risk everything in attempt to win back public support. Get ready to crouch in your seats as zingers will fly during Mamet's scathing, hilarious and darkly brilliant November. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Two straight couples are confronted with their own homophobia and personal regrets in this classic play from legendary playwright Terrence McNally. Always considered a challenging play with its difficult subject matter, this will arguably be one of theatre Q’s most ambitious productions to date, as the set includes a pool onstage. Water on stage is always tricky, but to incorporate a pool into Dragon’s 42-seat venue will undoubtedly result in one of theatre Q’s most elaborate sets. Starring in the show are Meredith Hagedorn (Mountain View resident, members of Actors’ Equity Association), Jeffrey Hoffman (Berkeley resident and theatre Q co-founder), Mary Lou Torre (San Jose) and theatre Q managing artistic director, Dale Albright (Castro Valley). Terrence McNally won Tony Awards for best play for Love! Valour! Compassion! and Master Class. His other plays include Corpus Christi, which was named one of the best plays of 1998 by Time magazine; A Perfect Ganesh, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; The Lisbon Traviata; and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. He has written a number of television scripts, including ANDRE’S MOTHER, for which he won an Emmy Award. Mr. McNally has received two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Rockefeller grant, a Lucille Lortel Award, and a citation from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. A member of the Dramatists Guild since 1970, Mr. McNally was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, and makes his home in New York City.
