A Life in the Theatre

by David Mamet, directed by Bob Goepfert

May 18-20, 2018 (Fri-Sun)Two actors: one young and rising into the first full flush of his success; the other older, anxious and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable, endlessly cyclical rhythm of the world. David Mamet is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such seminal plays of our time as Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo, Oleanna, and Speed-the-Plow.

Director: Bob Goepfert directed Mastergate for Theater Voices way back in the last century and most recently The Accident with Benita Zahn and Jim Kambrich. He's won TANYS Awards for directing at Albany Civic Theatre and Nickel and Dime Players. Bob is the former Executive Director of Albany's Palace Theatre and is currently the drama critic for the Troy Record and The Saratogian. His reviews can be heard on Public Radio at WAMC.
