written by David Mamet

May 9 - June 10, 2007

"Strong, edgy and bracingly evocative theater."
- Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Secrets, riddles and lies. These are the tools with which David Mamet constructs one of the most elliptical and agonizing plays of his career. Concealed intentions, withheld information and emotional manipulation converge to create a tense family puzzle that will irrevocably alter the lives of three people. With what is said to be his most autobiographical of plays, Mamet takes us all back to that place where we first realized the world is a dangerous place.
