ROMANCE by David Mamet
May 9 - June 7, 2009
A Jewish chiropractor, a Catholic defense lawyer, a gay prosecutor, and a pill-popping judge walk into a courtroom..." It's ROMANCE...Mamet-style. Lawyers and judges, Jews and Christians, homosexuals and chiropractors no one gets off easy in Mamet's madcap skewering of the American legal system. As a Mideast Peace Conference convenes nearby, an ambiguous court case is persistently interrupted by domestic squabbles, ethnic slur-slinging, and a hallucinating judge. The noble practice of Law degenerates into sheer comic chaos as Mamet ponders the most fundamental human question: Why can't we all just get along? ROMANCE is the first of three productions featuring David Mamets comic work entitled Sex, Satire, Romance, and Ducks: A David Mamet Celebration, which also include the Mamet double bill SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO and THE DUCK VARIATIONS, and SERIOUSLY FUNNY, an evening of short plays by Mamet, and his friends Harold Pinter and Shel Silverstein.
