Overview


Synopsis

Romance, David Mamet's farcical send-up of the courtroom drama, takes place during a trial in which, well, the Defendant is defended by the Defense Attorney, prosecuted by the Prosecutor, and judged by the Judge, all while an intense Middle East peace conference rages just down the street. That's about all that can be said about the plot of this piece, which is much more about the establishment versus mayhem, Jew versus Gentile, straight versus gay, and reason versus nonsense. Broad physical comedy and wacky non-sequiturs inform the tone of the play, in which Mamet points out that our tribalĀ hatreds will lead only to chaos in the end.
