A Life in the Theatre

A Life in the Theatre / Η ζωή στο θέατρο
A Life in the Theatre is a 1977 play by David Mamet.

It focuses on the relationship between two actors, the play's only characters. One, Robert, is a stage veteran while John is a young, promising actor. As the play goes on they are involved in a variety of productions, and gradually their relationship begins to change.

Notable UK productions include a run at London's Apollo Theatre, from 2 February to 30 April 2005 with Patrick Stewart as Robert and Joshua Jackson playing John.

Another revival featuring Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight and directed by Neil Pepe began performances on Broadway in a limited engagement, opened officially in October 2010 for a 15-week run, through January 2, 2011. However, after mixed critical reviews and low box office returns, the show will close on November 28, 2010 after 24 previews and 56 regular performances.
