The Old Neighborhood

The Custom Made Theatre Co. proudly opens our 2007/08 season with Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright David Mamet's The Old Neighborhood.

Called his "most autobiographical play" by The New Yorker, The Old Neighborhood is Mamet's fierce and funny scenes from a mid-life crisis as Hollywood agent Bobby Gould returns to his hometown Chicago neighborhoods to reconnect with the people and powerful emotions of his past.

In three vignettes, he encounters an old buddy, his sister, and a former lover. Hanging over each of them is the breakup of community, of family and, above all, of the Jewish culture that held them together.

Directed by Artistic Director Brian Katz, and staring Custom Made regulars Leah S. Abrams, David Fierro, Mary McGloin, Michael Berlin and introducing Gabriel Grilli* as Bobby Gould,The Old Neighborhood is a journey in discovery and healing not to be missed!

*member Actor's Equity.  The Old Neighborhood is an Equity approved project.
