Over Our Head Players will perform American Buffalo, a play that features three men, their low morals, one run-down junk shop and a heist.

The play runs for three weeks starting Nov. 20 at the Sixth Street Theatre, 318 Sixth St.

Written by David Mamet, the characters offer up gritty humor in the fast-paced drama.

“When the con goes awry, it’s every man for himself, pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams,” according to a press release.

American Buffalo runs Nov. 20, 21, 22; Nov. 27, 28, 29; and Dec. 4, 5, 6.

Friday shows are at 8 p.m., Saturdays are at 5:30 and 8 p.m., and Sundays are at 2:30 p.m..  Tickets are $17.50 on Fridays and Saturdays, and $15 on Sundays.  For reservations or information, please call the box office, (262) 632-6802.  Tickets are also available online at www.overourheadplayers.org.

American Buffalo includes strong language.
