Directed by: Greg Natale
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-The-Plow, takes us into the lives of two actors: John, young and rising into the first flush of his success; the other Robert, older, anxious, and beginning to wane. In a series of witty, short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable and endless cycle of life, in and out of the theatre.

A LIFE IN THE THEATRE Jewish Repertory Theatre/Maxine and Robert Seller Theatre
David Mamet’s two-person play, “A Life in the Theatre,” now at Jewish Repertory Theatre, is a parenthetical nod to the actors behind the characters. It considers the weight of honing a craft, managing your talent and assuming the responsibility of your fellow artists. And all the while, accepting the limits one must have when taking on other personas for a living.
