Experience the dangerously desperate dynamic, action and drama that comprise American Buffalo.
Teach wants in on the action Don and Bobby are planning, and will do anything to get it.. In his run-down junk shop, Don suspects a coin collector, who recently purchased a rare buffalo nickel for $90, conned him of its true value. With this in mind, he plans a robbery with Bobby to retrieve the coin. Overhearing the scheme, small time crook, Teach, tries to manipulate his way into the scheme, simultaneously trying to cut the hapless Bobby from the score.

“The beauty of David Mamet’s 40-year-old play is how much meaning remains implicit… it reverberates with political and ethical possibilities” The Guardian.
