WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Instantly acclaimed when it opened on Broadway, American Buffalo is one of Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet's defining works. Treat Williams (Golden Globe Award nominee) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis (The Motherf***er With the Hat) star in Dorset Theatre Festival's fresh look at this American classic. In a Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection. These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise, but they are merely pawns caught up in their own game and last-chance, dead-end pipe dreams.
