9781472533722: Mamet Plays: 5: Boston Marriage; Dr Faustus; Romance (Contemporary Dramatists)

David Mamet: 'No modern playwright has been bolder or more brilliant.' New Yorker Boston Marriage: This comedy-of-errors is new territory for David Mamet. Anna and Claire are ladies of fashion who have long lived together on the edges of upper-class society. '[Mamet's characters] are at each other's throats with a wit akin to character our Wilde and a vengeance not unlike this from Pinter or Edward Allbee.'-Boston Globe Faustus: Combining resplendent language and metaphysics, Mamet offers a daring retelling of the Faustus story, a famed philosopher in his prime stakes the life of his family on the accuracy and authenticity of this magnum opus. What begins as a quest for immortality becomes an exploration of life's most important and fragile treasures. Romance: An uproarious courtroom farce, which lampoons the American judicial system and exposes the hypocrisy surrounding personal prejudices and political correctness. "It made me weep with delight.... Romance is funny. Extremely funny.' -Wall Street Journal
