As the 2012 Presidential election campaign continues, David Mamet’s November offers audiences a fiendishly funny, over-the-top, no-holds-barred take on American politics. Unfolding in one day, just days before a national election and with poll numbers “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol,” President Charles Smith, the most corrupt and inept buffoon to sit in the Oval Office, sets his sight on a second-term. With his usual acerbic wit and edgy social commentary, Mamet’s latest masterpiece is a gleeful cornucopia of corruption and political incorrectness full of shady backroom schemes like Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon and an American Indian lobbyist who wants to turn Nantucket into a gambling resort, that will leave you laughing out loud. “Extremely funny” (The New York Times), November “rollicks from one politically incorrect punch line to the next” (San Francisco Chronicle).
