Description

David Mamet's AMERICAN BUFFALO

"Mr. Mamet creates a subterranean world with its own nonliterate comic beat, life-and death struggles, pathos and even affection... In American Buffalo, he has created a deceptively small-scale tragedy that is packed with the power to explode the largest of American myths." –Frank Rich, The New York Times

In a decrepit Chicago junk shop, three ne’er-do-wells – petty thieves and junkies – plot to claw their way out of America’s economic trash-bin in a story that’s equal parts tragedy and comedy. Junk shop owner Donny, naïve young junkie Bobby, and paranoid loose cannon Teach plot to rob a coin collector who foolishly showed off a valuable American Buffalo nickel. Although they see themselves as businessmen on the rise, their ambitions clash against the realities of their own habits and deficiencies – testing the limits of friendship, interrogating the meaning of loyalty, and forcing each of them to confront the near-impossibility of trust. Is the American dream really a nightmare?

Since its premiere in 1975, audiences have loved American Buffalo’s vivid characters, dark humour, volatile intensity and its thoughtful examinations of friendship, loyalty, and success. Prepare yourself for a story you'll never forget!
