[exp] [/exp]True Colors Theatre’s production of American Buffalo will be at the Southwest Arts Center through March 6, 2016.
The quick summary: “This banter-fueled heist drama by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet tells the story of an urban junk-shop owner who, after discovering that he sold a rare buffalo nickel to a customer for far less than its true value, conspires with a young employee and a shady friend to steal it back. The pursuit of their twisted vision of the American Dream is thwarted by their greed, and it becomes every man for himself when the con goes awry. This hilarious and smart comedy is, at its core, a heartbreaking portrait of criminal desperation. Featuring Mamet’s emblematic writing style, American Buffalo pulls no punches with its terse and often vulgar dialogue, which Mamet himself referred to as a ‘profane poetry.'”
