“November,” is set just days before a major presidential election and speaks about issues such as civil marriages, gambling casinos, gay men and women, American Indians, presidential libraries, questionable pardons and campaign contributions.
“It’s about the President of the United States, who is about to get voted out of office,” Mamet told Playbill.com in 2008. “He’s got one week left in office. He’s going to lose the election, and his approval rating is in the single digits.”
Mamet won a Pulitzer Prize in the 1980s for his drama, “Glengarry Glen Ross.” Other works include “Speed-the-Plow,” “They Cryptogram,” “American Buffalo,” “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” and “The Voysey Inheritance.” His movie screenplays include “The Verdict,” “Wag the Dog,” “State and Main,” “The Spanish Prisoner,” and “The Untouchables.”
