American Buffalo kicks off 2019


David Mamet's gritty play runs Jan. 18-Feb. 3

In a Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable “Buffalo nickel.” These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality of the three – Donny, the oafish junk shop owner; Bobby, a young junkie Donny has taken under his wing; and “Teach,” a violently paranoid braggart – is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams. 

David Mamet's scripts contain strong language; this show is not suitable for children. 

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors (62+), students and military personnel.
