A renowned psychiatrist is asked to testify on behalf of a young patient. When he refuses, his career, ethics and faith are thrown into question. A thrilling world premiere from the great American dramatist and Atlantic co-founder David Mamet.
Cast & Creative
“The Penitent is timely and exciting!”
“Bauer makes a hearty meal of Mamet’s juicy dialogue.”
“You can still hear a little of that old Mametian magic. The language is both casual and formal and the result can be wonderful — like Schubert scoring a boxing match.”
The New York Times
“One of America’s most influential dramatists.”
Atlantic’s study guides take educators and their students deeper into the story. Each guide provides a variety of discussion starters, activities, and a relevant contextual basis to immerse students in the world of the play before attending the show.
