The Duck Variations, a comedy by David Mamet
Thu, October 18, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until Sat, October 27, 2018
Produced by iDiOM Theater and Stone Town Theatre Works.
Emil and George, two gentlemen in their sixties, are sitting on a park bench by a lake in a big city. Wherever their conversation goes, it always comes back to ducks: their mating habits, their mortal enemies, their inevitable demise.
Written by David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-Plow, etc).
This play dramatizes the old adage that people who talk the most with authority about something are the ones most likely to know the least about it. A wry, pseudo-existentialist discussion of what we do and why we do it, in fourteen ‘variations’, Mamet’s short duologue was first presented in the U.S.A. by the St. Nicholas Theatre Company at Goddard College, Vermont, in 1972, and had its British premiere at the Regent Theatre, London, in 1977.
