Description

Directed by Stephen Drewes

Featuring Aaron Murphy and Frannie Morrison

David Mamet is a prolific writer of plays about the darker side of the American experience, where profound truths emerge from what at first seem the most mundane conversations. His best known work includes Duck Variations (1972), Sexual Perversity in Chicago (1975), American Buffalo (1975), Glengarry Glen Ross (1984), and Speed-the-Plow (1988). His play Race, about race and ethnicity, opened in New York in late 2009 and was the first new play to recoup its investment in the 2009-2010 Broadway season. Mamet also has made a name for himself as a Hollywood screenwriter. Among his films are House of Games, The Untouchables, Hoffa, and Wag the Dog, for which he was co-winner of the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.
