February 21st ONLY - pay what you will (at the door) Directed by John Jaeger STARRING: James Heath Brad Craddock Mark Casey David Woodworth Aiden Baker Jeff Miller Ed Scutt Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright David Mamet’s ROMANCE is an uproarious, take-no-prisoners courtroom comedy that gleefully lampoons everyone from lawyers and judges, to Arabs and Jews, to gays and chiropractors. It’s hay fever season, and in a courtroom a judge is popping antihistamines. He listens to the testimony of a Jewish chiropractor, who’s a liar, according to his anti-Semitic defense attorney. The prosecutor, a homosexual, is having a domestic squabble with his lover, And all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place. Masterfully wielding the argot of the courtroom, David Mamet creates a world in micro-cosm in which shameless fawning, petty prejudices and sheer caprice hold sway, and the noble apparatus of law and order degenerates into riotous profanity. “It made me weep with delight…ROMANCE is funny. Extremely funny.” —Wall Street Journal. “A wild ride…An outrageous, hectic comedy composed in the hyperliterate pro-fanity that made him a legend…For fans of Mamet at his most joyfully vicious, it’s everything you ever wanted.” —NY Magazine. “An exhilarating spectacle…[Mamet] is a connoisseur of fiasco.” —The New Yorker. “A fiesta of forbidden laughter…A giddy, glorious, bad-taste valentine…” —NY Newsday. visit our website @ www.limelightprod.org for more info!
