Are you a lawyer? Then get $5 off new Mamet play

If you’re into gritty playwright David Mamet’s work, or only call yourself a theatergoer when law-related content applies, then mark your calendar for this coming Sunday, Feb. 19.

That’s because it’s “Lawyer Day” at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre (JET) in West Bloomfield, when tickets for both the 2 and 6:30 p.m. performances of Mamet’s newest play, “Race,” are $5 off if you simply mention you are a practicing lawyer.

It’s described as a “dazzling, instant classic,” about “a would-be client accused of rape and his defense that is plotted by a very small law firm with its two lead lawyers and young associate.  And yes, it comes complete with the bad-faith twist and the sustained surge of words rushing toward collision that are guaranteed to let you know that this is a Mamet masterpiece.”

Of course, it being a Mamet play, it contains provocative language, and racial and sexual references.

Performances take place at the DeRoy Theatre, inside the Jewish Community Center, 6600 W. Maple, West Bloomfield. Call (248) 788-2900 or visit
