American Buffalo by David Mamet
Synopsis: Set in the gritty world of a Chicago junk shop, “American Buffalo” is a powerful drama that explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and the elusive American Dream. The play centers around three characters: Donny Dubrow, the shop’s owner; Walter “Teach” Cole, a street-savvy hustler; and Bob, a young gofer. When Donny sells a buffalo nickel to a customer for $90, he later suspects it was worth much more. The trio plots to steal the coin back, leading to a day filled with tension, betrayal, and the questioning of their own morals and relationships.
