Synopsis: The author's second play. Now considered a modern classic. One of the landmarks of modern American drama and literature. Published in a small and limited print run. David Mamet is the heir of Arthur Miller as the spokesman in the theatre for the common man, ekeing out a precarious living and trying to live a life of dignity and pride in the face of often overwhelming odds. He exposes the lie to the so-called American Dream with power and conviction. If that sounds portentous, one must also be reminded that Mamet is one of our funniest writers without meaning to be funny, in the way entertainers are. Winner of the Drama Critic's Circle Award and the Obie Award. One of the finest living American writers. (c) 2004 ModernRare
