Winner 1977 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Best American Play One of America’s greatest playwrights, David Mamet infused American Buffalo with his trademark style and dramatic craftsmanship, creating a theatrical tour de force that stands the test of time.

In a Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable “Buffalo nickel”. The three conspirators fancy themselves as businessmen pursuing the legitimate concerns of free enterprise - but in reality, they are merely small-time crooks, and all of their plotting amounts to nothing in the end. American Buffalo is a triumph of language and a devastating snapshot of what human beings are capable of doing to each other when they run out of options.

“Gripping drama”

The New York Times

“It isn’t often that a play with a dramatic intensity of American Buffalo comes to the Broadway theatre.”
