Current Production


Black Stripe Theater presents the play, “A Life in the Theater“, by David Mamet.  Directed by Tim Harris.

Featuring Walter Roberts and Chris Parham.

Although a comedy, with brilliant comic writing, there are sad and serious undertones that make this a uniquely satisfying play. David Mamet is one of the foremost American playwrights, and his plays have won numerous awards both in the USA and elsewhere.
