The Duck Variations
By David Mamet
Directed by Betty Diamond
This play dramatizes the old adage that people who talk the most with authority about something are the ones most likely to know the least about it. Two old men discuss the ways of ducks and life, making observations that are profoundly hilarious.
Two elderly men sit on a park bench talking about the ducks, but their simple musings eventually turn to the meaning of life, the nature of knowledge, and the need for companionship. Written while Mamet was an undergraduate student at Goddard University, The Duck Variations was a popular success, and is considered to have established its author as a playwright of note.
