The World Premiere of Mamet's Latest Work
Don't miss the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's latest work The Christopher Boy's Communion. Set for a strictly limited 10-day run at LA's Odyssey Theatre this winter, the star-studded affair features a cast of stage and screen veterans including Emmy Award-winning leading man William H. Macy, frequent Mamet collaborator Rebecca Pidgeon and Irish IFTA Lifetime Achievement Award winner Fionnula Flanagan.
Little is known about the new work's full story, but it is reported to chronicle the consequences and shock waves surrounding a grisly murder that takes place in New York's Central Park. The award-winning creative team is rounded off by scenic designer John Iacovelli, costume designer Laura Bauer and lighting designer Luke Moyer.
David Mamet - Modern Literary Icon
Not one to shy away from the subversive or controversial, David Mamet rose to prominence as a literary icon thanks to his fearless confrontation of the explosive issues of our times. As a founding member of the Atlantic Theater Company, he first gained recognition for The Duck Variations, Sexual Perversity in Chicago and American Buffalo, the 1976 trio of Off-Broadway plays. Eight years later, he won the coveted Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Glengarry Glen Ross, a searing portrait of toxic masculinity with a poetic, weaponized vernacular. With myriad plays and film scripts under his belt, he continues to be one of the greatest and most influential of living American dramatists.
