DAMIAN DISCUSSES HIS RETURN TO THE WEST END AND PERFORMING ALONGSIDE JOHN GOODMAN AND TOM STURRIDGE IN THIS BEHIND-THE-SCENES INTERVIEW
AMERICAN BUFFALO WILL PLAY FOR A STRICTLY LIMITED SEASON FROM 16 APRIL – 27 JUNE 2015
Shot at a photo shoot for the play, a behind-the-scenes video interview with Damian Lewis discussing the forthcoming production of American Buffalo. John Goodman and Tom Sturridge will star alongside Lewis in the production which will play for a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre, with previews from 16 April 2015.
Winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best play, David Mamet’s explosive drama examines the fickle nature of honour among thieves. As three small-time crooks, Walter “Teach” Cole (Damian Lewis), Don Dubrow (John Goodman) and Bobby (Tom Sturridge), plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed and a coveted Buffalo nickel.
Considered a classic of the American canon and recognised as one of Mamet’s masterpieces, American Buffalo premiered at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago and opened on Broadway on 16th February 1977. The play was also adapted into a 1996 film starring Dustin Hoffman (Teach), Dennis Franz (Don), and Sean Nelson (Bobby).
American Buffalo is produced in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw, Nia Janis and Nick Salmon for Playful Productions, Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Bartner/Tulchin Productions, Georgia Gatti and Will Trice.
