About this show

When David Mamet's American Buffalo opened in 1975, audiences reeled. Ripped from America's raw underbelly, ripe with obscenities, the story of three friends in a world of lowlifes, American Buffalo changed the landscape of American drama. Mamet's raging, hopeless characters--Donny, the ignorant owner of a junk store, Bobby, a spaced out drug addict, and Teacher, a dangerous bully--are hoping to lift valuable coins from a local dealer, but when you're dumb, angry and paranoid, something is bound to go wrong. American Buffalo, which won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award in 1976 for Best American play, may be a grim portrait of society's disenfranchised, but scratch the surface, and you may be surprised at the human connection. Anders Cato directs. Adult themes/strong language. Not recommended for children. Group Sales Number (25+): 413-298-5536 EXT 33 Appropriate For Ages: 17+
