Newly-promoted movie producer Bobby Gould receives a sure-fire project from his longtime partner, Charlie Fox. The movie has it all: action, buddies, a girl – and guaranteed fame and fortune for them both. But when Gould’s temporary secretary, Karen, asks him to abandon the buddy film for an “artsy” novel, the balance of power is upset and Fox’s pending fortune, Bobby Gould’s career, and the fate of the world are all put at stake.

This dark comedy from David Mamet is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is today as timely as ever. Mamet’s characters fight the battle between art and commerce, but who wins? It’s a story about the intense value and responsibility of storytelling itself, and the complications and compromises created by power struggles, loyalty, greed, and sexual politics; and it’s marked by the raw language, biting humor, and signature dialogue that have made Mamet one of America’s greatest playwrights.
