David Mamet's gift for storytelling and forging putry from both the plain-spoken and profane turns an ill-conceived scheme to steal a rare coin into a triumph of dramatic art. In a junk shop, three men of different generations plan their heist. But their fates, like the nickel's worn image of the beleaguered buffalo, may have been sealed long ago. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production starring Rich Hutchman as Donny DuBrow, Josh Stamberg as Walter Cole (Teacher), and Maurice Williams as Bobby. Directed by Brian Kite and recorded before an audience by L.A. Theatre Works.

"In this 1975 OBIE-winning gem by one of America's most influential writers, actors Rich Hutchman ("Madmen") and Josh Stamberg ("Parenthood") and newcomer Maurice Williams own the stage as a comic/tragic trio of criminal-mastermind wannabes intent on stealing a rare Buffalo Nickel. Hutchman and Stamberg especially revel in finding the everyday poetry in the quick and rhythmic dialogue of Chicago's South Side. This short play is no simple, breezy comedy as the actors dig deep to bring out the vulnerability, confusion, and hurt in their working-class characters. Kudos to L.A. Theatre Works for this delightful 2015 production, and for once again illustrating that the contemporary stage is perfect for audiobook listening. B.P.
