Northeast State Theater presents American Buffalo Nov. 19-21

The Northeast State Department of Theater presents the award-winning, volatile stage drama American Buffalo for three nights only beginning Nov. 19 at the Blountville campus.

Playwright David Mamet’s hard-hitting, profane tale delves into man’s ongoing struggle to rise above his lot, a goal which ultimately eludes most.

The action centers inside a dusty Chicago junk shop where three small-time crooks plot the robbery of a coin collection including a prized “buffalo nickel.” While the thieves fancy themselves as businessmen, they must face the cold reality of violence and betrayal resulting from their choices.
