Geffen Playhouse stages one of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's defining works, "American Buffalo". Instantly hailed as a new American classic when it opened on Broadway, "American Buffalo" is the story of a Chicago junk-shop owner who conspires with his young gofer and a shady friend to steal a customer's pricey coin collection. Geffen Playhouse Artistic Director Randall Arney takes a fresh look at these misguided misfits and their pursuit of a distorted vision of the American Dream. As the time for the theft approaches, their greed begins to overshadow their ideals and nothing goes according to plan. It's a hilarious, banter-fueled comedy and a heartbreaking portrait of criminal desperation that pulls no punches with its terse and often vulgar dialogue, which Mamet himself referred to as a "profane poetry." With explosive humor, frenetic energy and surprising tenderness, "American Buffalo" returns to Los Angeles for its first major production in more than a decade, promising a mesmerizing experience for both Mamet fans and those seeing the play for the first time.
