Mamet’s American Buffalo — Alumni Show July 6-8

This summer the Walden Theatre Alumni are bringing you AMERICAN BUFFALO by David Mamet. It’s going to be an intense night, so make sure you leave any collectible coins at home. And there’s a lot of grown up language here, so this is not a show for the little ones.

The show plays at Walden Theatre, with showtimes 7:30pm Friday July 6, Saturday July 7, and Sunday July 8. Tickets are $8 (student I.D. makes it $5). Box office will open an hour before each performance. Click here for the Facebook event.

Later in the summer the alumni will produce a comedy sketch show and some one-acts written by young Louisville playwrights. Support the Louisville arts community and don’t miss out on this Mamet masterpiece.

Teach ……………… Jacob Lyle
Bobby ……………… Elliot Cornett

From the publisher:
“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.”
