American    Buffalo

by David Mamet

Starring Craig Kolkebeck and Bob Paolino

 

April 18-20 & 25-27, 2019 at 7:30pm


During one long day in a run–down junk shop, three men of great ambition and low morals plan a heist of a customer’s valuable coin collection. When the con goes awry, it’s every man for himself. This fast paced drama is all aggression and testosterone, with characters wielding words like weapons to intimidate, cajole and manipulate each other. The results are hilarious, powerful and ultimately tragic in a play that’s recognized as a modern masterpiece.

 

General tickets are $17.55 and student tickets are $10. Tickets will be available March 18, 2019.

A dedicated Union nurse and a mysterious Confederate refugee meet on the Shiloh battlefield to compete for the title of Best Female Reenactor of the Year. With their young trainees trying to out-do each other in "authenticity," and a concessionaire egging both sides on, their competition leads them into real conflict with Ranger Wilson, an African-American female park ranger who would rather be anywhere than the year 1862, imaginary or not. As the re-enactment rages out of control, all six women discover that some conflicts of the Civil War weren't left behind in 1862.
