Mary-Arrchie Extends AMERICAN BUFFALO
You make your own right and wrong. During a single day in an unremarkable junk shop on a nondescript street in Chicago in the mid-'70s, three small-time would-be crooks scramble to pull off a fast heist for easy money. As they plan the unlikely caper, an increasing tension between them tests their friendship and threatens to shatter everything they fight for. Hilarious and appalling, this brute race for a lowlife version of the American dream is brilliantly syncopated by Mamet's rapid-fire two-bit bum's lingo.
The production team for AMERICAN BUFFALO includes: John Holt (scenic design), Sarah Jo White (costume design), Claire Sangster (lighting design), Joe Court (sound design), Little Howlin' Wolf (original music), David Woolley (fight design), Michael J. Sanow (technical director) and Rick Keeley (stage manager).
