Summary

"One of the undeniably great playwrights of the baby boomer generation. . . . His zany recent lampoonKeep Your Pantheonshowcases what is perhaps Mamet's most underrated gift: his Houdini-like ability to slip out of pigeonholes."-Los Angeles Times "Schooloffers a textbook example of the style that made its author famous. . . . This is verbal vaudeville as only Mr. Mamet can deliver it."-The New York Times Best known for his precision-blade language and hot-button subject matter, David Mamet shows off a lighter side with his equally dexterous screwball comedyKeep Your Pantheon. Featuring an over-the-hill acting guru who lusts after both his toga-clad prot�g�, Philius, and a spot in the Sicilian Cork Festival, Mamet's play returns to the roots of comedy, paying homage to the Roman playwright Plautus, whose works also inspired Shakespeare'sThe Comedy of Errorsand the musicalA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This volume also containsSchool: a crackling curtain-raiser in which two teachers shoot back-and-forth on topics ranging from pedophilia to recycling. David Mametis a playwright, director, author, essayist, screenwriter, and film director. His plays include the Pulitzer Prize-winningGlengarry Glen Ross,Speed-the-Plow,American Buffalo,Oleanna,The Cryptogramand, most recently,Race.
