Written by David Mamet
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
We are pleased to open this season’s Oakville Drama Series with a play penned my award winning playwright David Mamet. A Life In The Theatre focuses on the relationship between two actors, one a stage veteran, the other a promising young actor. In a series of play snippets that run the gamut from melodrama and sheer corn to pseudo-Chekhov, they portray the reality as well as the illusion of acting. Mishaps of the kind peculiar to the theatre occur with hilarious regularity. The setting provides the audience with an interesting glimpse of behind the scenes activities as most everything that would normally take place hidden from the audience will be in plain view.
Directed by: Paul Groulx
