Publisher's Summary

David Mamet's gift for storytelling and forging poetry from both the plain-spoken and profane turns an ill-conceived scheme to steal a rare coin into a triumph of dramatic art.

In a junk shop, three men of different generations plan their heist. But their fates, like the nickel's worn image of the beleaguered buffalo, may have been sealed long ago.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production starring Rich Hutchman as Donny DuBrow, Josh Stamberg as Walter Cole (Teacher), and Maurice Williams as Bobby. Directed by Brian Kite and recorded before an audience by L.A. Theatre Works.

A Beautiful Listen!

This play is how I remembered it, for I played Donnie at one point in my acting career. This play is serious but comical, and the people who narrated or played the scenes were excellent. I highly recommend this audible title. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing production and sound design

The acting is superb and all comes out via the dialogue... never wished I could “see” the play instead.

Additionally the sound design is really great... you hear anything that’s absolutely pertinent to the story.

Josh Stamberg Shines as Teach

The whole production is great, but I dare say Stamberg's Teach is the best I ever heard, far better than Hoffman's. An absolute must for David Mamet's fans, and first time listener alike.

A brilliant author's least impressive work?

It certainly is when compared to the many other works of his that I've enjoyed: on stage, in film and also audio.
