By David Mamet
Directed By Daniel Evans
16 April – 27 June 2015
The first rehearsal images have today been released for the upcoming London revival of American Buffalo starring Damian Lewis, John Goodman and Tom Sturridge.
The production, which is directed by Daniel Evans, will play for a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre, with previews from 16 April.
Winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best play, David Mamet’s explosive drama examines the fickle nature of honour among thieves.
As three small-time crooks, Walter “Teach” Cole (Damian Lewis), Don Dubrow (John Goodman) and Bobby (Tom Sturridge), plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed and a coveted Buffalo nickel.
Considered a classic of the American canon and recognised as one of Mamet’s masterpieces, American Buffalo premiered at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago and opened on Broadway on 16 February 1977.
The play was also adapted into a 1996 film starring Dustin Hoffman (Teach), Dennis Franz (Don), and Sean Nelson (Bobby).
American Buffalo is produced in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw, Nia Janis and Nick Salmon for Playful Productions, Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Will Trice, Steve Traxler, Bob Bartner and Georgia Gatti.
