The Sixth Act and American Buffalo (A Play About American Business)

The Sixth Act is pleased to partner with Geva Theater Center to provide an evening of theatre for MCC faculty, staff, and students. All are welcome to see David Mamet's masterpiece American Buffalo and then to participate in a special postshow talkback with actors in the play. In American Buffalo, three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection and, in the process, compete with one another over their deeply buried needs for attention and respect. Geva describes the play as "an intense ride, savage and funny.... An unflinching portrayal of the ethics of business and friendship [with] brilliant, edgy dialogue."

The performance is Thursday, November 16, at 7:30 p.m., at Geva's Nextstage, and ticket prices are $13. To purchase tickets or to get more information, please contact Professor Caren Pita at before Monday, October 30.
