The Anarchist written by David Mamet will be published Jan. 22 by Theatre Communications Group. The production recently appeared on Broadway at the Golden Theatre. Upon closing, the production played 23 previews and 17 performances.
The production starred two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone, who previously appeared in Mamet’s The Woods, All Men are Whores, The Blue Hour, The Water Engine, Edmond and The Old Neighborhood; and three-time Academy Award nominee Debra Winger who’s previous stage credits include How I Learned to Drive and Ivanov at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts and The Exonerated in New York. Winger made her Broadway debut in THE ANARCHIST.
In The Anarchist, LuPONE plays the title character and WINGER plays a prison official —these actresses will make theatrical fireworks as one character, put away for life, wants out while the other wants to make sure she stays inside. This explosive new work by MAMET is about passion, redemption, deception, and revolution. Mamet, who brought a fierce sense of pace and excitement to the direction of his own Race, will once again be at the helm of the production.
