About this Item

A very handsome copy of this major play by David Mamet, one of 1,500 copies printed. This is a scarce collector's volume, but an indication of the continued viability and relevance of this play is that it is still performed regularly, and still continues to startle audiences with its sudden plot developments and revelations, all plausible, all stunning. Binding is black cloth, with bronze lettering on the spine. DJ is unchipped, unclipped, and unmarked -- all in all, a strong copy. Original owner's embossed mark is on ffep, and it adds to the panache of the book. Bookseller Inventory # 110720

About this title

Synopsis:

In David Mamet's latest play, a male college instructor and his female student sit down to discuss her grades and in a terrifyingly short time become the participants in a modern reprise of the Inquisition. Innocuous remarks suddenly turn damning. Socratic dialogue gives way to heated assault. And the relationship between a somewhat fatuous teacher and his seemingly hapless pupil turns into a fiendishly accurate X ray of the meechanisms of power, censorship, and abuse.

About the Author:

David Mamet is one of the most distinctive voices on the contemporary American stage. He was born and had his first and many subsequent plays premiere in Chicago. His screenplays include: The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Verdict, The Untouchables, We're No Angels and Glengarry Glen Ross; he was writer and director for House of Games, Things Change and Homicide.
