Additional Info

Edmond, a man set morally adrift, leaves an unfulfilling marriage to find sex, adventure, companionship, and, ultimately, the meaning of his existence. This play has been described as a sort of reverse-image morality play; whereas Everyman went on a journey in search of his salvation, Mamet's Everyman descends into the maelstrom of big-city degradation.

Reviews

"Describes a world in which morality is tangential, in which there seems to be no moral feelings, only brutal, cruel ones, no concern for others, only selfishness and self interest." - Women's Wear Daily

"A play that blisters, disquiets, shatters, hurts [...] An example of masterly control over a dizzying experience and it will knock you for a loop." - New York Daily News
