American Buffalo

by David Mamet
Opening Night 21 October 2004
Director: Andrew Morrison

Written in 1975, American Buffalo is a landmark play, essentially a modern [im]morality tale, portraying the dysfunctional social dynamic between three small-time crooks as they plot an il-fated heist from a junk shop. Since its premiere 30 years ago, the play has intrigued, baffled and thrilled audiences with its obscenity-laced vernaular, absurd humour and pornography of violence. Without ever mentioning politics, Mamet has written a deeply political play in which business and crime are equated and in which profit becomes an alibi for theft.
