Great Barrington Public Theater brings its six-week cycle of new plays to a close with five remaining performances of the East Coast premiere of David Mamet’s chilling new drama, The Christopher Boy’s Communion, playing Aug. 5-8, at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Daniel Arts Center, McConnell Theater.
Directed by the company’s artistic director Jim Frangione, who is also a friend of Mamet, the challenging play is set in Manhattan, with a the high-power Berkshire cast including Keira Naughton, David Adkins, Will LeBow, Diane Prusha, Monk Schane-Lydon, Nathan Hinton, and Kevin O’Rourke.
Laid out in the form and tradition of classical tragedy, it’s the tale of a mother who will do anything and risk everything to save her son from a destructive fate. The play poses profound Socratic questions about prejudice, privilege, justice, faith redemption, the human soul, and answers them with stunning finality. This is Mamet at his leanest and sharpest, helmed by a director who has acted in Mamet plays and films, and who knows how to make the language and resolutions resonate.
The Christopher Boy’s Communion final performance is Aug. 8. Tickets are $30-$40, and information can be found on the company’s website. http://www.GreatBarringtonPublicTheater.org
