Overview


David Mamet is the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of such seminal plays of our time as Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo, Oleanna, and Speed-the-Plow. His A Life in the Theatre takes us into the lives of two actors: one young and rising into the first full flush of his success; the other older, anxious and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable, endlessly cyclical rhythm of the world.

One of Mamet's first plays, and by far my favorite. It's the story of two actors who share a dressing room in a small repertory company. John is a young, promising talent; Robert behaves like a has-been until it becomes clear that a more accurate description would be 'never-was.' As the onstage and backstage worlds of these two men begin to merge, two unforgettable characters are created by David Mamet.
