Hell! - Two One Act Plays Bobby Gould in Hell by David Mamet & The Devil and Billy Markham by Shel Silverstein

Published by Samuel French Inc

Bobby Gould in Hell

This is Bobby Gould's day of reckoning. The conniving movie mogul from Speed the Plow awakes in a strange room. A loquacious interrogator in fishing waders enters

Gould argues his case. A woman he has wronged appears and gets so carried away that she says some sassy things to the Interrogator. In the end, Bobby is damned for being "cruel without being interesting"

"Funny and pungent" ~ N.Y. Times

"Lifts the soul" ~ N.Y. Daily News

"Hilarious ... with flashy magic tricks" ~ Newsday

The Devil and Billy Markham

In this amazing rendition of a tall tale written in rhymed couplets, Billy Markham loses a sucker's bet with the Devil but ultimately outwits him

"A tour de force with the jokes coming Faust and furious" ~ N.Y. Post

"A rip snorting, raunchy delight. Very, very funny" ~ AP
