Life, death and ducks

David Mamet play runs in James Bay

The Duck Variations, by David Mamet, will be proudly presented by Attitude Theatre and the James Bay United Church Arts Ministry for several shows this April and May.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Mamet’s play is a profoundly funny rumination on life, death and ducks.

Ira Shorr and David Biltek play charming curmudgeons, enthusiastically sharing misinformation on a lakeside bench, in what The Guardian has called “a brilliant little play.”

Directed by Tony Cain, the performance runs at 7 pm, April 27-30 and May 5-7, and at 4 pm, as well on May 7.

The venue is James Bay United Church, located at 511 Michigan Street.

Tickets are $20.

“This Mamet masterpiece covers so much in the space of less than an hour…[it’s] filled with wisdom and befuddlement,” says Stage Door, St. Louis.

Mamet is one of the most prolific and influential playwrights of the latter-20th century; he’s also has also written a host of feature films, including the screenplay adaptation of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross.
