American Buffalo - June 7 to November 8, 2014 (Touchstone Theatre)
By David Mamet
Directed by Kenneth Albers
An astounding play from the master of American drama, three men struggle with poverty, friendship and trust while contemplating a robbery. Don, Teach and Bobby discuss their plans to commit the crime in Don's flailing pawn shop; their every word and silence meaning more than what it seems. American Buffalo digs into the minds and conversations of the desperate, turning their words into a kind of profane poetry. Featuring Brian Mani as Donny, James Ridge as Teach and Brendan Meyer as Bobby.
