Mamet madness! ROMANCE is a roller coaster ride in which no one is left unscathed. Chiropractors, Lawyers, Christians, Jews, Gays, Minorities, Shakespeare and even World Peace are skewered as only Mamet can. An outrageously zestful comedy - joyfully vicious. Inspired Mamet at his most adept. Leave your 'politically' correct' hat at home.
