Romance

by David Mamet

Poster of Romance

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet’s ROMANCE is an uproarious, take-no-prisoners courtroom comedy that gleefully lampoons everyone from lawyers and judges, to Arabs and Jews, to gays and chiropractors. It’s hay fever season, and in a courtroom a judge is popping antihistamines. He listens to the testimony of a Jewish chiropractor, who’s a liar, according to his anti-Semitic defense attorney. The prosecutor, a homosexual, is having a domestic squabble with his lover. And all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place. Masterfully wielding the argot of the courtroom, David Mamet creates a world in micro-cosm in which shameless fawning, petty prejudices and sheer caprice hold sway, and the noble apparatus of law and order degenerates into riotous profanity.
