Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

"Gripping. . . . Deep in its gut, Mamet's new play argues, everything in America—and this play throws in sex, rape, the law, employment and relationships—is still about race."—Chicago Tribune

"A dramatist celebrated for introducing expletives to the American theatre now tackles a truly taboo four-letter word. . . . Most concerned with the power and treachery of language, Mamet remains American theatre's most urgent five-letter word."—Guardian

David Mamet, who took on the subject of sexual harassment with his 1992 drama Oleanna, has once again ignited controversy, hitting the hot-button issue of our so-called post-racial society. When a rich white man is accused of raping a younger African American woman, he looks to a multicultural law firm for his defense. But even as his lawyers—one of them white, another black—begin to strategize, they must confront their own biases and assumptions about race relations in America. Currently playing to acclaim on Broadway in a production directed by Mamet, audience members may be moved to self-scrutiny by his signature gritty yet finely tuned language.

David Mamet is a playwright, director, author, essayist, screenwriter, and film director. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Glengarry Glen Ross, which also received a Tony Award nomination, along with Speed-the-Plow. Other of his plays include American Buffalo, Oleanna, and The Cryptogram.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite possibly, Mamet's greatest work to date 21. Juni 2011
Von P. M. Bradshaw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Quite possibly, Mamet's greatest work to date. It is at least the equal of Glengarry Glen Ross, Edmond, and American Buffalo, if not better.

Mamet walks the tightrope of race in America, questioning and arguing nearly every assumption and stereotype of the past 50 years on race relations. The plot involves an older white man, accused of raping an African American woman. The two lawyers considering taking the case - one black and one white, with a black woman as their new assistant. This four-person cast, with only three together at any one time, provides a fairly amazing multitude of conversations on the case in particular, and race in general. Nearly every aspect of the topic is brought up in some way, truly plumbing the angst, rage, and confusion of the subject matter in a very short period of time (only 64 pages).

While I would have liked to see the last scene go on a little longer, maybe another 15 or 20 pages, this work is shocking, thought-provoking, and utterly brilliant.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blistering play that creeps up on you till the last line 27. April 2012
Von Sugith Varughese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Somehow Mamet seems to often capture the zeitgeist of what's happening in American society. The firestorm of political correctness and the Clarence Thomas hearings spawned his earlier play Oleanna and now, in the wake of the Treyvon Martin shooting, reading Race becomes an incendiary experience. What appears to be a comic portrayal of lawyers scheming to get an apparently guilty man off a heinous charge of raping a black woman becomes a swirling cauldron of a barely suppressed race war played out in Mamet's typically profane and witty language. The male lawyers apparently in charge of the case discover that they had no idea what was really at stake when they took it on until the very last line of the play. Thought-provoking and a fast, memorable read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Play 3. August 2011
Von Nathan Wunderlich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ordered this book for a Class, saw the cover, read the first few pages, took a little time to pick up, but once picked up WOW! Something I would like to see done.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Brutal treatment of race and sex 16. April 2014
Von BillStory - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this play. It is "in your face" with brutal honesty about race and sex and guilt. You won't view racial sex the same way again.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Read 3. März 2014
Von Fran-A-banna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great read. The content left me with much to think about, albeit a bit stretched at times.
