The production showcases Mamet’s gift for storytelling and forging poetry from both the plain-spoken and profane.

"In a Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks of different generations plan their heist. These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But their fates, like the nickel’s worn image of the beleaguered buffalo, may have been sealed long ago," according to a news release.

Matthew Huval stars as Bobby, Duncan Thisthlewaithe as Donny and LRE co-founder Cooper Helm as Teach.
