Nothing is quite what it seems in Mamets latest work. With a nod to his mentor, Harold Pinter, Mamet employs his signature verbal jousting in The Anarchist, which centers on two women: a prison governor and a prisoner with a life sentence trying to make the case that she merits parole. The Broadway premiere stars Patti LuPone and Debra Winger.

Anarchist [an/er-kist] n. 1. A person who opposes the authority of the state. 2. A person who causes disorder or upheaval. 3. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's new play about one woman who is put away for life, and another who is committed to her rehabilitation. "Students of Mamet won't want to miss it; I was engaged and compelled throughout. Indeed, The Anarchist is a counterweight to the conventional dramatic tropes of family, love and death.” -Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune "The Anarchist leaves no shortage of material for after-theater debate.” -Elysa Gardner, USA Today "Being challenged to rethink your own perceptions and prejudices is a refreshing thrill of the sort that has otherwise been in short supply so far this season...it makes The Anarchist one of Mamet's most trenchant and timely offerings ever.” -Matthew Murray, Talkin' Broadway "The viewer experiences Mamet's signature rhythmic language. In what is like a ping-pong game, this battle of two women over freedom, power, money, religion-and the lack thereof, remains compelling during the eighty-five minutes it runs...Powerful, thought-provoking, and current.” -LA Splash Magazine David Mamet is a playwright, essayist and screenwriter who directs for both the stage and film. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Glengarry Glen Ross. His plays include China Doll, Race, The Anarchist, American Buffalo, Speed-the-Plow, November, The Cryptogram, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, Lakeboat, The Water Engine, The Duck Variations, Reunion, The Blue Hour, The Shawl, Bobby gould in Hell, Edmond, Romance, The Old Neighborhood and his adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance.
