David Mamet

David Mamet's Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commander-in-chief

It's November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith's chances for reelection are looking grim

Approval ratings are down, his money's running out, and nuclear war might be imminent

Though his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her post-White House life, Chuck isn't ready to give up just yet

Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the President has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys - saving them from the slaughter before Thanksgiving - and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in attempt to win back public support

With Mamet's characteristic no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win


"Ferociously original ... and crisply performed, [November] rollicks from one politically incorrect punch line to the next" ~ San Francisco Chronicle

"Savage merriment ... delightful ... wild ... brilliant" ~ San Francisco Examiner

"Vaudeville meets current events ... David Mamet just couldn't resist the bully pulpit of satire" ~ San Jose Mercury News

"Extremely funny" ~ The New York Times
