A collection of outstanding plays from one of America's greatest
playwrights Boston Marriage David Mamet conquers new territory with
this droll comedy of errors set in a Victorian drawing-room. Anna
and Claire are two bantering, scheming ladies of fashion who have
long lived together on the fringes of upper-class society. Anna has
just become the mistress of a wealthy man, from whom she has
received an enormous emerald and an income to match. Claire,
meanwhile, is infatuated with a respectable young lady and wants to
enlist the jealous Anna's help for an assignation. "Devastatingly
funny . . . exceptionally clever" New York Times "Brilliant . . .
One of Mamet's most satisfying and accomplished plays, and one of
the funniest American comedies in years" New York Post Faustus A
modern retelling of the classic tale of pride, folly and the
ultimate wager. Faustus has it all - fame, success, a loving
family. But a careless pact with a beguiling magician threatens
everything. In language, scope and theatrical sensibility, Faustus
represents a big departure for Mamet, melding resplendent language
and metaphysics in an eerie and moving retelling of the tragedy of
Doctor Faustus. Romance Wildly humorous and often gob-smackingly
outrageous, Romance is an uproarious courtroom farce, which
lampoons the American judicial system and exposes the hypocrisy
surrounding personal prejudices and political correctness. "An
exhilarating spectacle" New Yorker "It made me weep with delight. .
. . Romance is funny. Extremely funny." Wall Street Journal
