Winner of the Obie Award and New York Drama Critic's Best Play Award, American Buffalo tells the story of Don, Teach and Bob's struggle to get ahead. Centering on a scheme to recover a buffalo nickel recently sold from Don's Resale Shop, the three discover realities about business, leadership and ethics, all told from the petty theft view of the pursuit of the American Dream. An almost unintentional companion piece to Death of a Salesman, American Buffalo takes a modern look at the underbelly of American capitalism in which every exchange including friendship has business written on it. Due to strong language, The Rep encourages the fearless and adventurous to join us for this show.
We recommend American Buffalo for ages 17 & up. Learn more.
