    Revisiting this play in light of Mamet falling down the Fox News rabbit hole, and I was delighted to see there's a new version. It flows better than the earlier draft, but still has the subversive edge that made me fall in love with this play 3 years ago. A perfect companion piece for any theatre to put on alongside a Mamet play (or better yet, instead of).

    Rippling with truths both fantastical and punch-you-in-the-gut realistic, this play-within-several-more-plays manages to shake deeply held beliefs with even the most casual lines of dialogue. Each new layer reveals so much more about the characters from the layer before, as well as the audience sitting and watching those characters. Some plays demand to be watched - this play needs to be produced.

    It is the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's pleasure to recommend Mathilde Dratwa and their play A Play about David Mamet Writing a Play about Harvey Weinstein as a finalist for our 2020 National Playwrights Conference. This particular work emerged from a highly competitive, anonymous, and multi-tiered selection process to become one of 63 finalists out of more than 1,500 submissions. This enthralling piece galvanized the hearts and theatrical imaginations of our reading teams and is fully championed by our offices. We are honored to put our enthusiastic support behind this writer and their ongoing contributions to the American Theater.

    This play is utterly brilliant. I was gobsmacked. And then I was gobsmacked again. Dratwa has written a thrilling piece of theatre. I cannot wait to see her work onstage.

    Oh wow I absolutely loved A Play About David Mamet Writing A Play About Harvey Weinstein. I laughed out loud reading it and I cannot wait to shriek with laughter in the theatre when someone inevitably produces this firecracker of a theatrical experience. I truly cannot fully articulate how smart and funny this play is. All I can say is thank you, Mathilde.

    Playwrights Foundation enthusiastically recommends this play, A PLAY ABOUT DAVID MAMET WRITING A PLAY ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN, as a Semi-Finalist for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival 2020. We were moved by the quality of the writing and the relevant and compelling themes that spoke to the mission of our festival. It excelled in a competitive process of 735 plays submitted this year and rose to the top after a six month long process discussing its merits with both national and local Bay Area readers, and we hope it moves swiftly towards production.

    Holy crap, this play this play THIS PLAY. DO THIS PLAY. The last page filled me with tears and hope and rage and joy - seeing so many women/nb/trans folx I know represented made my heart swell and hurt. I don't have much to add that hasn't already been covered, except that this is necessary, incendiary work.
