MMSP to stage ‘American Buffalo’

Published 11:08 am Tuesday, April 17, 2012


MONTEVALLO – The Montevallo Main Street Players will stage “American Buffalo” by David Mamet on April 26-28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 2 p.m. at the Parnell Memorial Library Theater, 277 Park Road in Montevallo.

Directed by James Kitchens, the cast includes Todd Ponder as Don, Aaron Moore as Teach, and Stephonn Ammons as Bob.

Tickets are $10 for general admission; $5 for students.

The setting is a Chicago junk shop in which three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable buffalo nickel. These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen, pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality of the three — Donny, the oafish junk shop owner; Bobby, a young junkie Donny has taken under his wing; and Teach, a violently paranoid braggart — is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams.

This play contains adult language and situations.

American Buffalo is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
