A Life in the Theatre is a comedy that deals not only with two actors, but also with teacher/pupil, mentor/disciple, and the rites of passage in our lifetimes. Mamet takes us into the lives of two actors: John, young and rising into the first flush of his success; the other Robert, older, anxious, and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the endless cycle of life, in and out of the theatre.
