David Mamet

Published by Samuel French Inc

8 Male 0 Female

This fascinating series of vignettes is set aboard a Great Lakes steamer. It focuses in on the crew, the hardhats of the steel waterways, all but one of whom are "lifers"

The other character is a young college man who has been hired to replace the night cook. He is the closest thing to the central figure

"The show has much of Mamet's poetry of the inarticulate, the ritual, tribal double talk that makes sense underneath the ludicrous patters of our lives" ~ Chicago Tribune

"A banquet of meaty acting parts" ~ Milwaukee Sentinel
