Alley Theatre presents November by David Mamet
As the 2012 Presidential election campaign continues, David Mamet's November offers audiences a fiendishly funny, over-the-top, no-holds-barred take on American politics. Unfolding in one day, just days before a national election and with poll numbers "lower than Gandhi's cholesterol," President Charles Smith, the most corrupt and inept buffoon to sit in the Oval Office, sets his sight on a second-term.
With his usual acerbic wit and edgy social commentary, Mamet's latest masterpiece is a gleeful cornucopia of corruption and political incorrectness full of shady backroom schemes like Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon and an American Indian lobbyist who wants to turn Nantucket into a gambling resort that will leave you laughing out loud.
Recommended for mature audiences due to language and thematic content.
November features Alley Theatre resident actors Jeffrey Bean as President Charles Smith, James Belcher as The Representative of the National Association of Turkey and Turkey Products, Elizabeth Bunch as Clarice Bernstein, David Rainey as Dwight Grackle and Todd Waite as Archer Brown; scenic and lighting design by Kevin Rigdon, costume design by Blaire Gulledge and sound design by Pierre Dupree.
