Mamet Plays: 6 : November; Race; The Anarchist Paperback / softback

Part of the Contemporary Dramatists series


RaceSparks fly when three lawyers - two black and one white - and a defendant clash over the issue of race and the American judicial system.

Drawing on one of the most highly charged issues of American history, David Mamet forces us to confront deep-seated prejudices and barely healed wounds in this unflinching examination of the lies we tell ourselves and the truths we unwillingly reveal to others. NovemberIt's November in a Presidential election year and incumbent Charles Smith's chances for re-election are looking unlikely.

Approval ratings are down, his money's running out, and nuclear war might be imminent.

But Chuck isn't ready to give up just yet. November is a hilarious take on the state of contemporary America. The Anarchist Cathy is a woman who has served 35 years of a life sentence for killing a policeman in a botched robbery.

Her prison officer Ann must decide whether or not to grant her parole.

Mamet once again employs his signature verbal jousting in this battle of two women over freedom, power, money, and religion.
