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.
The play is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Tickets are $5 each and admission is free to Northeast State students with a valid student ID. The production dates are Nov. 19, 20, 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium (A202) at the College’s Blountville campus. Due to adult situations and language, the play is recommended for ages 18 years and older.
