Pistarckle Theater Presents David Mamet’s “American Buffalo”

Pistarckle Theater presents “American Buffalo” written by one of America’s preeminent playwrights, David Mamet. The play stars one of the Virgin Islands best actors, George Silcott Jr. as Teacher, and features Jarret Cherkas and Josh Rodia. The original performance schedule has been changed. Pay-as-You-Can Night will now be held on Thursday, Dec. 2. Opening night is Dec. 3. Performances are also scheduled for 8 p.m. on Dec. Dec. 4, 10, 11, 16 and 17. at Pistarckle Theater, which is located in Tillet Gardens.

Don, a failing junk dealer, realizes he has unwittingly been suckered into selling a rare coin to a wealthy customer for a pittance. He and Bob, his gopher, set out to seek revenge by stealing the man’s priceless coin collection in the name of good business. When Teacher, an inexperienced petty thief, catches wind of the deal, he convinces Don to cut Bob out and cut him in, setting up a situation that explores and ultimately explodes the fine line between friendship, loyalty and greed.
“American Buffalo” is a no holds barred, hard edged, visceral play that exposes the true worth of friendship in business. In Mamet’s hands, the strong, uncompromising language of the street takes on a poetic characteristic, revealing in no uncertain terms the true nature of these three misanthropes. Audiences should note that this is a raw and uncompromising play in language and content using pervasive and explicit profanity.
