Buffalo Wild Wingnuts

A A

David Mamet’s American Buffalo is that rare, much-loved play that seems never to age or grow threadbare, no matter how often it’s produced. And it’s produced rather frequently. Directed by the company’s Michael Peck, the story chronicles three small-time crooks who are after a man’s coin collection, which contains a valuable Buffalo nickel. The trio of thieves -- Teach, a violent nut-job with delusions of grandeur; Donny, the crude junk-shop owner; and Bobby, a teenaged junkie -- think of themselves as businessmen; the audience sees them as losers. The moral about the hopelessness and vulgarity of contemporary American life is classic Mamet.
