David Mamet



Recommendation: Daughter reading plays for course.

This was the first non Shakespearean play I've read! It is supposedly a "classic" (American?), but quite a strange 2 hander (plus unseen characters at the other end of a phone) revolving round a college professor and a student. I was glad of internet notes to explain it. The action of each scene highlights misunderstandings between the characters (lack of communication) and different expectations (political correctness).
