Theatre at Bridgewater College Presents: American Buffalo

Where: Black Box Theatre, Cole Hall. Seating is first-come, first-served
Theatre at Bridgewater College presents “American Buffalo” by David Mamet on Thursday, March 24, and Friday, March 25, in the Black Box Theatre of Cole Hall. The show will begin at 8 p.m. each night.
In a Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable “Buffalo nickel.” These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality of the three – Donny, the oafish junk shop owner; Bobby, a young junkie Donny has taken under his wing; and “Teach,” a violently paranoid braggart – is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams.
“American Buffalo” is recommended for mature audiences. The show is a theatre capstone production, and presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
