David Mamet’s gift for storytelling and forging poetry from both the plain-spoken and profane turns an ill-conceived scheme to steal a rare coin into a triumph of dramatic art. In a junk shop, three men of different generations plan their heist. But their fates, like the nickel’s worn image of the beleaguered buffalo, may have been sealed long ago.
An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring:
Rich Hutchman as Donny DuBrow
Josh Stamberg as Walter ‘Teach’ Cole
Maurice Williams as Bobby
Directed by Brian Kite. Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in November of 2015.”
“Hutchman and Stamberg especially revel in finding the everyday poetry in the quick and rhythmic dialogue of Chicago’s South Side…Kudos to L.A. Theatre Works for this delightful 2015 production, and for once again illustrating that the contemporary stage is perfect for audiobook listening.” –Audiofile Magazine (Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award)
