  §  Dramatis Personae Andrew Davis (m) , a playwright; William Roberts (m), Andrew’s partner; Reginald Kemp (m), the African-American vice president of the theater company; Allison (f), Mr. Kemp’s secretary.

  §  Synopsis “Andrew and William are David Mamet-obsessed playwrights who have submitted a play to the Streetlight Players Play Festival. Their play is a doozy—a profanity-drenched, borderline racist story of all things Mamet (con games, sexual harassment, real estate . . . ). They present their work to Reginald Kemp, the African American director of the theatre company, who sees right through their Mametisms. But the boys persevere until the ending, where they learn that maybe there’s another hero or two out there for them to emulate . . . .

  §  Comment “One scene, very simple sets. The roles suit performers of any age, although the play contains lots of profanity and adult humor.  •  ‘Yes, Mamet’ premiered at the City Theater 10-Minute Play Festival, in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.A., in 2001, and showed at the Ten by Ten Festival, in North Carolina, in 2002.

  §  Themes African-American, Mamet (David Mamet, American playwright, director, 19__-____), play festival, playwriting, profanity, racism, theatre company.
