Description

"Gripping. . . . Deep in its gut, Mamet's new play argues, everything in America—and this play throws in sex, rape, the law, employment and relationships—is still about race."—Chicago Tribune

"A dramatist celebrated for introducing expletives to the American theatre now tackles a truly taboo four-letter word. . . . Most concerned with the power and treachery of language, Mamet remains American theatre's most urgent five-letter word."—Guardian

David Mamet, who took on the subject of sexual harassment with his 1992 drama Oleanna, has once again ignited controversy, hitting the hot-button issue of our so-called post-racial society. When a rich white man is accused of raping a younger African American woman, he looks to a multicultural law firm for his defense. But even as his lawyers—one of them white, another black—begin to strategize, they must confront their own biases and assumptions about race relations in America. Currently playing to acclaim on Broadway in a production directed by Mamet, audience members may be moved to self-scrutiny by his signature gritty yet finely tuned language.

David Mamet is a playwright, director, author, essayist, screenwriter, and film director. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Glengarry Glen Ross, which also received a Tony Award nomination, along with Speed-the-Plow. Other of his plays include American Buffalo, Oleanna, and The Cryptogram.
