OVERVIEW

Set just days before a presidential election, November, a new play by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet, proves, once and for all, there’s no lower place than the highest office in the land, as the incumbent Commander-In-Chief must try to get a grip on such issues as lesbian marriage, Indian casinos, preposterous pardons and questionable campaign contributions, without losing his grip on the Oval Office.

Starring Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane as President Charles Smith, Laurie Metcalf as presidential aide Clarice Bernstein, and Dylan Baker as presidential advisor Archer Brown, November will reunite Mamet with Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello, with whom Mamet collaborated on the Tony Award-winning revival of Glengarry Glen Ross.
