Renowned for his sharp dialogue and insightful subtext, David Mamet's writing prowess is on full display in his existential comedy The Duck Variations, now presented by Different Stages at the La Jolla Commons Theatre. Depicting a conversation between two elderly men watching ducks from a park bench, the topics discussed range from the mating habits of ducks to examinations of law, leadership, friendship and even death. The fact is, however, neither one of these men knows the first thing about ducks ... but that doesn't mean they won't unearth some true wisdom over the course of this comedic one-act.
This performance is approximately one hour long.
