Threshold stage company presents: american buffalo by david mamet
september 20 - October 6

Kittery’s critically acclaimed Threshold Stage Company presents Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Mamet’s explosive masterpiece “American Buffalo” at the Star Theatre.

Universally acclaimed as one of the best plays of the Twentieth Century, “American Buffalo” is a hard-hitting, compelling and incendiary play of friendship and loyalty versus business and greed perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of humor. The action revolves around three men plotting a crime of misguided revenge. The subsequent discussions and in-fighting progressively undermine their plan; devolving into ever increasing tension, suspicion, anger and violence.

A cast of top regional actors, Allan Mayo, Peter Motson and Griffinn Gower, under the expert direction of award-winning director Heather Glenn Wixson brilliantly create and inhabit the gritty and volatile dog eat dog world of Mamet’s “American Buffalo” where things aren’t always what they seem.

Recommended for ages 17 and up: (for language, suggestive content and some violence)

Running Time:      (2 hours with intermission)

december 12 - 22

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
