David Mamet

Published by Samuel French Inc

A medium with a talent for hucksterism and his ruthless student meet with a woman who wants advice about her deceased mother's will

They plot to relieve her of the entire estate, but she tricks the medium into revealing what a charlatan he is

During the shock and pain of this moment, the medium experiences a revelation so profound that it changes the course of each character's life


"A fascinating exercise in film flam. The dialogue has a keen poisonous edge" ~ WNEW TV

"Displays the subtle word play with which Mr. Mamet can develop a prosaic situation" ~ Christian Science Monitor
