Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe presents a play which gives the audience snapshots of two theatre actors at very different points in their careers. Robert (played by John Marwick), is an old hand in the theatre, and John (played by Avi Duckor-Jones), a relative new-comer and initially eager to learn. Robert’s guidance is welcomed by John at first but as the older man’s acting and mentoring skills start to falter, John emerges as a confident and mature player.

Mamet has structured the play in a series of vignettes, some taking place 'backstage' and others onstage, representing scenes from a variety of actual plays. Some of these attempts are hilarious as things go wrong and they valiantly soldier on. But there is also poignancy in both the progress of the relationship, and of the diminishing talents and disillusionment of Robert. Directed by Emanuel Garcia.
