Fringe Underground


In English




In this uproarious, take-no-prisoners courtroom comedy, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet gleefully lampoons everyone from lawyers and judges to Arabs and Jews, to gays and chiropractors.  It’s hay fever season, and in a courtroom the judge is popping antihistamines.  He listens to the testimony of a Jewish chiropractor who, according to his (anti-Semitic) attorney, is a liar.  The prosecutor, a homosexual, is having a domestic squabble with his lover, who shows up crying in court.  And all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place.  David Mamet creates a world in microcosm in which shameless fawning, petty prejudices and sheer caprice hold sway, and the noble apparatus of law and order degenerates into riotous profanity.
