The Anarchist (play)

The Anarchist is a two-person 2012 play by David Mamet that opened in New York on Broadway and starred Patti LuPone and Debra Winger.[1]

The play is set in the office of a prison warden or representative of a parole board who is seen questioning and then verbally sparring with a long-term prisoner incarcerated for a Weather Underground-type crime during which she killed two police officers.[2][1]

The "anarchist" of the title is based on members of the Weather Underground, Judith Clark and Kathy Boudin , former members of the Weather Underground, who were took part in the Brink's robbery (1981).[3]

The play was not well-received by critics.[4]

The play had a 2015 production in Los Angeles, directed by Marja-Lewis Ryan with Felicity Huffman and Rebecca Pidgeon.[5][2]
