Nothing is quite what it seems in David Mamet’s latest work. With a nod to his mentor, Harold Pinter, Mamet once again employs his signature verbal jousting in this battle of two women over freedom, power, money, religion—and the lack thereof.
Coming Up This Season
Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon
The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal battle royale over a family heirloom. In one corner is the unstoppable and self-assured force of “Super Jew” Daphna. In the other, the immovable and entitled object of her secular cousin Liam. And in the middle is Liam’s brother Jonah, trying to stay out of the fray. This savage comedy about family, faith, and legacy follows three cousins and their savagely funny battle over a family heirloom.
