David Mamet Lecture: Art, Politics,Judaism, and The Mind of David Mamet

Wednesday, January 28 2009

Memorial Auditorium, Stanford University (see map)

A unique voice in contemporary letters, David Mamet is an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright as well as a director, novelist, poet and essayist. Mamet’s prolific stage and screen history includes The Untouchables, House of Games, The Spanish Prisoner, The Winslow Boy, Wag the Dog, Oleanna, Speed-the-Plow, American Buffalo and Glengarry Glen Ross. His recent analysis of the modern Jewish psyche, The Wicked Son, is a scathing look at anti-Semitism and a lament over what he variously calls “lapsed”, “fallen-away”, “opted-out” or “conflicted winter” Jews. In trademark Mamet style, The Wicked Son is blunt, bracing and refreshingly original.  Presented by Hillel at Stanford and the ASSU Speakers Bureau.
